The performance is part of the University’s 2013-14 A. R. Sanchez Sr. Lecture Series. 

“Mark Twain Tonight!” is a one-man play devised by Hal Holbrook, in which he depicts Mark Twain giving a dramatic recitation selected from several of his (Twain's) writings, with an emphasis on the comic ones.
However, a lengthy excerpt from “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is always included.

Holbrook, who can be seen in Steven Spielberg’s acclaimed “Lincoln” and Gus Van Sant’s  “Promised Land,” has performed the one-man show as Mark Twain since 1954.
