“An Evening with Mark Twain” will be presented at the Tater Patch Players Theater on October 14 at 7:30 p.m. and October 15 at 2 p.m. As noted in a review of one of his shows in Montgomery, Kurt’s Mark Twain “will give us a lot to think about at a time when slogans and moralizing have little substance, we could well take notice from the master.” (Montgomery Voice, Montgomery, AL)
Kurt Sutton has performed at Tater Patch several years ago. The passage of time has not dimmed his story-telling charm and Mark Twain style one little bit. I’m sure everyone from older kids to “older adults” will enjoy spending a little time in Mr. Twain’s parlor.
From the flowing white hair to the twinkle in the eye and the sly smile, this is a show that will convince you that you’ve been listening to one of America’s great writers and greatest wits. There’s likely to be a little music played, too, as Kurt/Mark is a fine musician.
Another reviewer, from one of his many performances all over the US said “(Kurt Sutton) provides the audience with a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes Mark Twain. It’s structured as an impromptu talk to an intimate audience, with diversions into the sort of the music with which Mr. Clemens entertained guests at his home. There is just enough audience interaction to keep things interesting, and just enough of Twain’s shambling delivery to give a taste of the real man.” There’s a question and answer with “Mr. Clemens” at the end of the show and every audience has loved it.
