Stargazette.com reports that Holbrook will bring his solo show, Mark Twain Tonight!, to the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY, April 21, and the Los Angeles Times says Holbrook will also perform his critically acclaimed Mark Twain tribute May 5 at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.

Holbrook earned the 1966 Best Actor Tony Award for Mark Twain Tonight!, a role he repeated on Broadway in 1977 and in 2005. He made his Broadway debut in Do You Know the Milky Way? and has appeared in After the Fall, Marco Millions, Incident at Vichy, Tartuffe, The Glass Menagerie, Man of La Mancha, The Apple Tree, I Never Sang for My Father, Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie? and An American Daughter. His screen credits include "The Sopranos," "Into the Wild," "The West Wing," "Designing Women," "All the President's Men," "Julia," "Wall Street," "The Firm," "Men of Honor" and "The Majestic."

Carter, the stage and television actress who played the tempestuous and fiercely dignified Julia Sugarbaker for seven seasons on television's "Designing Women," and carved out a late career as a nightclub singer, died April 10 at the age of 70 following a battle with cancer.
