Mr. Mark Twain (musical) (lyrics, songs)

The project is a musical biography of the famous American writer Mark Twain, who had a decade of working experience in Elmira, New York State & Hartford, Connecticut, as well as he was engaged in broadcasting on a number of public television stations. In 1988, the company Premier Recordings had released the original CD, which included all the songs of the musical, a number of dialogues & monologues. Video & DVD productions are currently in development. The basis of the production is a book written by J. Iredale. Music & lyrics created by composer W. P. Perry.

The director & choreographer of the show was selected D. Rosa, musical arrangement did W. D. Brohn. The creators wanted to create in every sense the volumetric musical. The cast has included more than 60 artists. In order to emphasize the greatness of the project, designers headed by W. Groom, built large-scale decorations, some elements of which reached 40 feet. Throughout all show, the unchanged leading actor was W. Perley. The most singing character went to actor J. Waddell.

In this creation harmoniously combined scenes of life of Mark Twain & the numbers of excerpts from his most popular books. With the creation of the musical linked very interesting fact. In 1989, William P. Perry went to Russia & selected 24 dancers from Great Ballet. The director took them all with him to America & eventually they became an integral part of this creation. It was a significant event during the Cold War, which greatly contributed to the development of cooperation between the two countries in the cultural sphere.
