Unpublished for over 100 years, Mark Twain’s signature humor comes to life on the stage in this “new comedy” adapted by David Ives. A young, talented painter (based on the real life Jean-Francois Millet) 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.

The cast features Josie Brandmeier, Alexandria Chapes, Seth Foust, Ana Gonzalez, Ben Jaeger, Erika Marks, Jack Morrison, Jared Paulin, Paul Urbanski, Brendan Walsh, and Sam Wood directed by David Furumoto.
