Discover Life on the Mississippi in Hartford

The Mark Twain House and Museum and the Workshop Theater Company present the exciting new musical play Life on the Mississippi for two performances only--on Friday, Dec. 13 at 7 pm and Saturday, Dec. 14 at 2 pm in the Mark Twain House Museum Center.

Currently running Off-Broadway at Workshop Theater Company, this new production comes direct to Hartford! It's a musical version of Mark Twain's classic memoir Life on the Mississippi. Hair-raising, hilarious, life-changing and violent are just some of the currents that steamboat pilot Sam Clemens has to navigate in this musical journey. 

Young Sam Clemens and his brother Henry step onto a Mississippi steamboat and aboard the chance of a lifetime. As a cub apprentice, his burning ambition propels him to become a steamboat pilot, but he soon discovers that learning the great, relentless river will be harder than he ever imagined. Now Sam must plot a course through the dangerous currents, as mysterious as the Mississippi itself. Book, Music and Lyrics by Philip W. Hall. Directed by Susanna Frazer. Presented by the Workshop Theater Company.

Seating is first-come/first-served. Free-will offering accepted. This special presentation is a benefit for The Mark Twain House & Museum.
