We don't have firsthand experience with the swinging nightclub scene of New York's Greenwich Village, but we can't imagine that it revolves around impersonating historical figures. But apparently it did at one time, because Ed Sullivan discovered Hal Holbrook and his one-man show Mark Twain Tonight! there in the 1950s. For the past 50 years, Holbrook has continued portraying Twain for some part of each year, including performances on television, in off-Broadway theaters and all across the country. Though he's more famous for roles in films such as Wall Street, Magnum Force and All the President's Men, Holbrook's love is still for Twain. For the first time, he brings his work to the Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St. in Fort Worth. The show starts at 8 p.m. with tickets ranging from $25 to $55. Call 817-212-4280.
