The fascinating life of storyteller and humorist Mark Twain is revealed in this one-man performance based on Twain's writings. The early years of Samuel Clemens, the Mississippi River experiences, and his move to the silver mining area of Nevada are portrayed by exuberant actor McAvoy Layne; some of the most famous tales, from "The Blue Jay Yarn" to "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" are woven into the history of this most colorful author. Amusing stories from "Letters from the Sandwich Islands" and questions from the live audience conclude this delightful performance.
"Twain's humor is always droll. (On the topic of polygamy he reminds us that the Bible says 'No man shall serve two masters.') Layne, who compiled this one-man show from Twain's writings, has just the right touch to bring this legendary author alive. And the audience laughter and interaction from this 1995 performance help the audio experience." (AudioFile)
