UPDATE: Stage and screen legend Hal Holbrook is retiring his signature one-man show “Mark Twain Tonight!” after more than six decades of playing the beloved author and humoris, thus canceling the scheduled Oct. 6 performance in Oklahoma City.
This week, CityRep opens its sixteenth season with a two week run for the Oklahoma premiere of the hit musical “A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline” on September 16, then continues with the magnificent “Mark Twain Tonight” on October 6.
The tribute to the music, life and times of Patsy Cline has been a breakout hit across the country. It is a nostalgic stroll down memory lane, as Broadway’s Julie Johnson returns to the CityRep stage to star in the show called “The perfect small musical.”
Performances will be Thursday, September 14, 7:30 p.m., Friday, September 15, 7:30 p.m., Saturday September 16 1:30 p.m. & 7:30 p.m., and Sunday September 17 1:30 p.m. The second weekend shows begin Thursday Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m., Fri. Sept. 22 7:30 p.m., Sat. Sept. 23 1:30 p.m. & 7:30 p.m., and Sun. Sept. 24 1:30 at 1:30 p.m.
Then, early next months comes “Mark Twain Tonight,” from the legendary actor (and writer of this story) Hal Holbrook. The show performs locally one night only (Friday, October 6) at 7:30 p.m. at Oklahoma City Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Theater. Take this perfect opportunity to see the five-time Emmy Award winner in a show the New York Times called “excruciatingly relevant just now.”
