We had the good fortune to visit Hannibal, MO at the end of June of this year. We had the NOT so good fortune to visit on a Monday and Tuesday! Most things are open and available, but as in the tradition in theatre, there aren't performances on Monday evenings. While wandering around Main St., we happened upon this theatre... More

The presentation by Richard at the theater was great fun and he was more than willing to entertain (even took requests)..Loved the setting in the remodeled livery stable for the former hotel there on that spot. Wonderful presentation.

A Mark Twain portrayer (can't remember his name) gave a lecture as Mark Twain would have done. What was most interesting was the conversation before the lecture with the visitor's. It was like talking to Mark Twain himself. Go early and visit and have tea and treats...included with the price.

Definitely need to consider putting this on your Hannibal agenda. There's not much to do after 5pm, but this is one thing you can do. "Mark Twain" will mingle with you beforehand and regale you with wit, wisdom and humor all through the show.

We thoroughly enjoyed Richard Garey as "Mark Twain Himself" The wit and humor of Mark Twain makes you feel that Samuel Clemens is there in the room himself. This was a terrific experience and the ultimate highlight of our trip to Hannibal.

Richard Garey does an awesome job as Mark Twain. A very enjoyable show.Different every time. Garey also does a "Must See" performance of with A Shepherds Tale at Christmas time. It is eye-opening and deepens your appreciation of the reason for the season. The theater itself isquaint and intimate. Lots of parking outside. I love the location in the center... More

First off, I should say that I'm not really a Mark Twain fan, but I thought this would be an appropriate thing to do while in Hannibal, so we went. The theater is cozy, and tea and cookies are included in the price. The actor visits with the audience in the "tea room" area before the show. He is in... More

My son and I went to see "Mark Twain" at the Planters Barn Theater. The man who was Mark Twain (can't remember his name) did an outstanding job! The atmosphere was of the theater was so cozy and inviting and we felt like we were truly watching Mark Twain.

Mark Twain really lives !!! This show was so awesome. Mr. Garey lives and breathes Samuel Clemens !! He kept character through out the entie time he was in the theater and even when we saw him at the museum - he WAS Mark Twain !! This was by far an even better experience than we expected. The ambiance of... More
