In his one-man adaptation of Twain’s work, “Life on the Mississippi,” actor and comedian Ken Teutsch goes back to the roots of America’s favorite storyteller. There is no white suit or white hair, no clever aphorisms delivered from a rocking chair. Here is a man in the prime of life recalling the glory days of steamboating on the mighty Mississippi, and recounting the unlikely story (sometimes harrowing and sometimes hilarious) of how a young, inexperienced and naïve Sam Clemens from Hannibal, Missouri came to realize the grandest dream of every boy on the River: becoming a steamboat pilot.
