Blair Einstein offers an entertaining evening with Mr. Twain. This one-man show offers short fiction, speeches, satire, aphorisms and letters: all furnishing a good introduction to the crusty Connecticut Yankee--as an author and as a man. Einstein reveals humor in an essay on weather and conveys grief in “The Death of Jean.” His confusion with regional accents occasionally breaks the pace, but his wholehearted performance and Twain’s general appeal hold the listener. Nonetheless, the spacing of segments is distracting. Such a variety of form and mood requires sensitive timing between selections. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
