This adaptation of a handful of Mark Twain's short stories was for the most part well performed and well staged. Acted out in a series of vignettes, this would probably be more engaging and enjoyable if you're familiar with the original stories.

More Information


On November 30, 1835, the small town of Florida, Missouri witnessed the birth of its most famous son. Samuel Langhorne Clemens was welcomed into the world as the sixth child of John Marshall and Jane Lampton Clemens. John and Jane could hardly know that their son Samuel would one day be known as Mark Twain — America’s most famous literary icon.

Twain began to gain fame when his story “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calavaras County” appeared in the New York Saturday Press on November 18, 1865.

Twain’s first book, The Innocents Abroad, was published in 1869, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 1885. He wrote a total of 28 books as well as numerous short stories, letters and sketches.
