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

I would have liked this show more if the staff wasn't so noisy. We sat in orchestra left near the sound manager/lighting booth. They should have been wearing headsets. All night we had to listen to stage and lighting direction. It was very distracting.

The show did not start on time because the box office was inefficient in getting people their tickets. There was waaaay too much talking. The singers I found to be uninspiring. I left early. So, I can't comment on the entire show.
The Diva Foundation is a national not-for-profit 501C(3) charitable organization that was founded by actress/honored activist,Sheryl Lee Ralph, in 1991, as a memorial to the many friends she had lost to HIV/AIDS. The organization focuses on generating resources and coordinating activities to create awareness of and combat against HIV/AID. The DIVA Foundation utilizes music and entertainment as a vehicle to inform, educate and erase the stigma attached to this deadly disease.
This year’s event marks the 18th year of Divas Simply Singing. The show is known for its unparallel mixture of comedy, song, beauty, fashion and the kind of heartfelt human compassion that links generations, races, subcultures and unifies us all in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Diverse talents such as Chaka Khan, Oleta Adams, Melissa manchester, Dianne Reeves, Roberta Flack, Eartha Kitt, Stephanie Mills, Stacey “Fergie” Ferguson, Raven, Miss. Nancy Wilson, and many others have all raised their voices in song and support of Divas Simply Singing.
Divas Simply Singing has given assistance to organizations such as Project Angel Food, Caring for Babies with AIDS, Minority AIDS project, National Minority AIDS Council, and AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
