At 91, actor Hal Holbrook needs less makeup to play sage humorist and writer Mark Twain than he did when he started performing this one-man show in the 1940s. Over time, he has honed his portrayal of Twain, using the wry humor and witticisms of Samuel Clemens, who wrote American classics such as “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” under the Twain pen name. You’ll find Twain’s musings as relevant today as they were more than 100 years ago. An Oscar-nominated actor, Holbrook received a Tony Award and an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Clemons’ alter ego.
7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise. $35-$75. Ticketmaster.
