Stutts has performed one-man plays more than almost any other actor in the world over three decades. He has also appeared in Off-Broadway shows and acted in major American regional theaters. A native of Alabama, Stutt’s second cousin was the legendary actress, Tallulah Bankhead. He attended Yale University’s School of Drama.

The performance is in collaboration with the statewide campaign, The Big Read: Alabama Reads, which is designed to encourage library usage and literacy in the state by encouraging citizens to read the Mark Twain classic. Alabama Reads is an initiative inspired by the national reading campaign, The Big Read. Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Big Read supports libraries across the country in reading a book of the NEA’s choice.
