About Us

We are Mark Twain’s traveling theatre and we perform our Living History productions for discriminating theaters and libraries. The common thread is a general love of history and a specific fondness for Mark Twain.

Mark Twain's Traveling Theatre brings you
live Zoom performances from the comfort of your home.

Mark Twain’s Traveling Theatre is bringing you Live Theater at a price that you can afford. Free, maybe. Pay only what you can afford. Nothing?! . No problem, just pass on the good will. A donation? Great, pick a charity. There plenty of worthy ones. And it’s not likely their need is going away anytime soon. Yes, we have a Facebook site for our starving actors fund. Check it out or send a check, whatever.

MTTT will bring you six original works that will be performed in the weeks ahead. They involve the fascinating lives of Mark Twain, Frederick Douglass, Ulysses S. Grant and Harriett Beecher Stowe. This is history as it should’ve been written, with plenty of fact and just enough BS. It’s Like the History Channel with a sense of humor.

Don’t know your history then it’s about time you learn. Sit back, enjoy it and laugh. You will find that these are some of the Greatest American Heroes to ever have graced this country but all too human. I challenge you to watch this and separate the fact from the artifact.

We are bringing “His Excellency Mark Twain” And “Stowe’s War” back again in the weeks ahead for those who missed them. Sort of a bonus round. If you missed “Mark Twain 2020”, you are in luck, we will be running that rant live weekly until the we capture the vote of every American who did not vote in the last presidential election (106 million)

For those of you who are convinced this is the worst we have ever seen, join us for “Twain For Our Times”. He has seen worse and survived it. Join us for a message of hope and redemption. Otherwise wallow in your social media pit.

If you haven’t seen any of these shows live, then what are you waiting for? An invitation? OK, so here’s an invitation- just go to and become a subscriber. Find out weeks in advance of shows to come and get access to recordings of your favorite show. You might even get a t-shirt. Worn by one of the actors while performing.

If you are one of our loyal, binge watching Fans then we promise you a new show once a week until hell freezes over. Or we run out of good ideas.

If you are tired of our messages, let us know and we will take you off of our list. You only got on our list by joining us at, one or more, of our shows. Finally, if you have suggestions for future shows then let us know. They can’t be any screwier than what we have planned.

Twain returns in a one man show called “Twain2020”. Yup, in 1880 he threatened to run for President. It’s 2020 and he’s back to make a serious pitch to the 105 million Americans that didn’t vote in the last presidential election. With a campaign slogan- “You could do a lot worse!” Twain brings hope and a fresh look at today’s problems.

Live Zoom Performance:
Twain for Our Times- TBA


Seems we worry today about jurisprudence. And well we should, but when has justice ever been prudent.
Twain is back. He’s a 185-year-old Boomer and he has seen a lot. Try as we might we
can’t ignore history, especially if we continue to repeat it. This might be a good time to learn our history. Or History with a sense of humor.

His Excellency, Mark Twain- will return by demand

If you’ve seen these shows and enjoyed them, then wonderful! Let your friends and family know. If you haven’t seen them, what are you waiting for. Let us know which we should bring back. And we will.
