Mark Twain Haunts Lake Tahoe This Summer

Nevada’s most famous Mark Twain impersonator, McAvoy Layne, is “The Ghost of Mark Twain” Monday nights through Sept. 29.

Layne (whose resemblance to Mark Twain is eerie) begins his saga of Twain's Tahoe experience in Samuel Clemens' boyhood home of Hannibal, Mo., and skips along “jaunty-jolly” to his piloting days on the Mississippi. He regales his audience with his hapless Civil War misadventures, where he admits, “I was missing in action before a shot was fired.”

Layne's portrayal of Mark Twain continues with his overland journey to Nevada, culminating with his love affair with the Lake of the Sky, Lake Tahoe.

Layne, as Mark Twain, takes questions from the audience.
