Mitchell, Vilas Hall
Unpublished for over 100 years, Mark Twain’s signature humor (adapted by David Ives) comes to life on the stage in his only play. A young, talented painter finds his dreams of marrying thwarted by debts and his lack of buyers for his work. Forced into desperate measures, he realizes that no artist is truly successful unless he is dead. Faking his own death, Millet develops a masquerade that causes hilarious complications as he tries to secure his fortune, get the girl, and triumph.
