One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.

This was fantastic - as good as when I saw it on TV around twenty years ago! David Birney wrote the screenplay - he doesn't seem to age.
For those who haven't seen it, it begins with PASSIONATE love poems, then segues (sp?) into the main story.
The acting of both co-stars was tremendous, and the (minimal) set was perfect. I could hear almost all the dialogue (which is rare for me).
Quotes & Highlights
- *"Eendearing… a reminder of Twain’s storytelling genius and how much fun it can be… flavorful as apple cider, pungent, ironic." -Los Angeles Times
“Sharp and resourceful… played with freshness and theatricality…charming.” __-Variety__
The delicious and timeless wit of humorist Mark Twain is illuminated in David Birney’s stage adaptation, which won praise from L.A. to New York for Twain’s tender, knowing, and terrifically witty observations on the nature of men, women and love. A tour-de-force performance by Birney and co-star Madylon Brans!
