Mark Twain's Last Stand  



The 20th Century is a stranger to me--I wish it well but my heart is all for my own century. I took 65 years of it, just on a risk, but if I had known as much about it as I know now I would have taken the whole of it.

--Mark Twain

Alan Kitty brings to your stage or platform the most original interpretation of Mark Twain since Sanuel Clemens.

In 1979, Mark Twain interpreter Alan Kitty noticed that most Twain impersonators limited themselves to rehashing the show made famous by Hal Holbrook; or they changed just enough of that show to make a distinction possible or avoid a lawsuit.

In response, Kitty developed several live programs, each suited to a different type of audience. Eventually, these became theatrical performances, team-building seminars, guest speaker engagements, and educational programs.

Each of these programs is uniquely suited to its audience. For example, corporate clients will be amazed at Twain's modern grasp of their industry. Students will be challenged to extend their education beyond the classroom. Organizations seeking to improve collaboration between departments will find Twain's approach uniquely entertaining and effective.
