In his storied career, Hal Holbrook’s acting roles have ranged from presidents to an informant that helped bring down a president (Deep Throat in “All the Presidents Men”). But he is perhaps most affiliated with Mark Twain, who Holbrook has played in a one-man show for nearly 60 years.

Holbrook, a winner of Emmy and Tony awards, will reprise his portrayal of the legendary writer for “Mark Twain Tonight!” at 8 p.m. March 16 at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. The timeless show, first developed by Holbrook in 1954, has made three Broadway runs and was performed more than 2,000 times around the world.

Tickets are $38-$68. Visit or call 314-516-4949 to order tickets.

The Eugene Field House Foundation will present “Mark Twain Tonight!”
