Mark Twain & The Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston
Posted In: Events & Attractions | Galveston News Posted by Pam Moore on 09/16/2012

The other night I was watching a documentary on PBS about Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain. The documentary was a Ken Burns production and I learned many new things about this great American Author and Humorist.  Did you know that he almost committed suicide before he ever wrote his first novel?  Did you know he lived in Hawaii for a brief time?  The program I watched was part one, so I am looking forward to seeing part two!

Why do I mention Mark Twain?  Not merely because of the PBS broadcast, but because of a special event coming to The Grand 1894 Opera House, located in Galveston.

Actor Hal Holbrook will star in "Hal Holbrook - Mark Twain Tonight!"  on Saturday, April 13, 2013.  I have not purchased my tickets yet, but I am sure this show will sell out.  The Grand promotes this show with the following: "A living breathing American Masterpiece and one of the most acclaimed performances in history returns to the Grand!"  I did not see this program the first time it was scheduled at The Grand, so I feel the need to get my tickets now.  Hal Holbrook is a great actor, but he is also gaining years - who knows how much longer he will be able to travel and perform like this?

Count me in on watching part two of "Mark Twain" on PBS and getting my tickets to see Mark Twain being brought to life by Hal Holbrook.  Consider looking at the 2012-2013 Season offerings.  Maybe Liza Minnelli, William Shatner, "Lord of the Dance", "A Chorus Line" or The Texas Tenors will be of interest to you.  One trip to The Grand and I'll bet you will want to return!
