They had a nice segment on this Hartford production on Charles Osgood's
Sunday Morning on CBS this last Sunday.  Many of the characters are changed
to reflect a more American spirit and a more "earth" sort of spirit, rather
than the original German--  The costumes look intriguing.  Twain was VERY
briefly mentioned, along with T. Roosevelt and other Famous Americans who
attend the Party.  I assumed it was because of his experiences in the west.

There were quite a few very large insects and an assortment of young
ballerina flowers.  I look forward to a more informed response too.
Best holiday wishes to those Twain folks on the Forum -- more in the spirit
of Livy than Samuel.
