Having inhabited the life of the legendary author since 1954, Emmy- and Tony-winning actor Holbrook is on the way to playing Mark Twain longer than Samuel Clemens himself. The line between performer and part is so thin, he even titled his recent autobiography Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain. Although a popular film actor, known for roles such as “Deep Throat” in All the President’s Men and his Academy Award–nominated turn in 2007’s Into the Wild, year after year Holbrook returns to the mighty mustache of his alter ego in his acclaimed one-man show Mark Twain Tonight!. A living bibliography of all things Twain, Holbrook’s performance draws from endless hours of Clemens’s novels, stories, letters, and grocery lists. He never gives the same show twice and adds new material every year, always finding the prescient witticisms and clever similes to suit the times. Ruthlessly smart and charmingly craggy, Holbrook sends audiences down a mint-julep river with his expansive cache of Twain’s literary comedy, and he turns up his folksy, storytelling charm with hypnotic excerpts from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
