The Mark Twain House & Museum takes its public programming online starting Thursday, April 16, at 7 p.m., when it offers A Little Harmless Fun via Crowdcast. The event is free and open to all.
The program will feature host Frank Rizzo, long-time theater critic for Variety and arts journalist for The Hartford Courant, in a forward-looking conversation with Connecticut’s newest theater artistic directors. Jacob Padrón, of New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre, and Melia Bensussen, of Hartford Stage, will talk about their Tony Award-winning theaters, plans for the future (particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic) and their innovative plans for bringing new audiences into the theater without losing the established ones that have supported their institutions for decades.

The Mark Twain House & Museum is the restored Hartford, Connecticut home where American author Samuel Clemens — Mark Twain — and his family lived from 1874 to 1891. Twain wrote his most important works, including Adventures of Huckleberry FinnThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, during the years he lived there. In addition to providing tours of Twain’s restored home, a National Historic Landmark, the institution offers activities and education programs that illuminate Twain’s literary legacy and provide information about his life and times.
Programs at The Mark Twain House & Museum are made possible in part by support from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s United Arts Campaign and its Travelers Arts Impact Grant program with major support from The Travelers Foundation.
