The wit and wisdom of one of America's greatest humorists comes to life in Kurt Sutton's one-man show, An Evening With Mark Twain. Channeling Twain's public speaking engagements, where he proved to be a master storyteller and skilled musician, this family friendly and very funny show includes a sing-along of period songs like "Down in the Valley" and "Old-Time Religion," along with theatrical enactments of beloved stories from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain's semi-autobiographical travel memoir Roughing It and more. Sutton's portrayal follows years of research into the writer's life and works, including Twain's live performances that formed the roots of modern stand-up comedy. Learn More

About Divas Simply Singing!
One diva. One song. One night to touch a million lives. Created and produced by actress/singer Sheryl Lee Ralph in 1991, Divas Simply Singing! is a loving tribute to the many friends lost by HIV/AIDS. The annual benefit concert, produced in conjunction with the Diva Foundation, helps to raise money and awareness about the spread of HIV/AIDS.
With a unique blend of song, entertainment and empowerment, this oft-praised and highly-anticipated event continues to attract some of the most talented women in show business, uniting in song to fight a good fight. Diverse talents such as Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Oleta Addams, Melissa Manchester, Dianne Reeves, Roberta Flack, Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson, Stephanie Mills, Tremaine Hawkins, Karen Clark Sheard, Fergie and many others have raised their voices in song and support of Divas Simply Singing! In 2007, the original Dreamgirls from the award-winning Broadway musical – Sheryl Lee Ralph, Jennifer Holiday and Loretta Devine – reunited on stage in song and brought the house down!
This year, Divas Simply Singing! is thrilled to partner with the Women Alive Coalition and the Sister Circle South Africa project. In the past, proceeds from the concert have benefited such organizations as Project Angel Food, Caring for Babies with AIDS, Minority AIDS Project, Safe Place for Pediatric AIDS, National Minority AIDS Council, Black AIDS Institute and AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
In 2005, Sheryl Lee Ralph was the recipient of the first Red Ribbon Leadership Award at the United Nations on World AIDS Day for her visionary and unique way of continuing to combat HIV/AIDS.
