It isn't lhal Ihe 36-year-old actor is weary of impersonating the famous American humorist at 70 — job he's done in 900 cities in 14 countries on three continents. He just feels it is lime for a little change. "I'm not giving up Mark Twain for good," he .said. "Twain is something like a church to me— a place you go into that is very private, and you get a kind of sustenance from' it, "Bui if you slayed there all the time, il wouldn't be the same. You can even get used to a beautiful sunset, if $o\i see too many of them." In a year or two he wants to make a worldwide lour in his rJe- picting Twain as a lecturer. Meanwhile, he plans lo appeav in a play, help write a musfical adaptation of Huckleberry Finn, and develop a new solo act built around anolher famous American —Abraham Lincoln. Starting next Aug. 18 llolbrook will star in a contemporary drama by Karl Wittlinger, which racked up 7,000 performance.') in Europe. "It is laid in a mental hospital 1 he said, "and concerns a German ex-soldier's search for identity and faith in the postwar world, "It has only two actors—the patient, whom I play, plus an actor who plays the doctor uncl 11 other parts." llolbrook is quite content to let someone else do Ihe changing required to portray 12 persons. He has spent a great deal of his life merely making up for his Mark Twain impersonation. "When I started the role originally as a 15-minute skit," he said, "I could get ready in five minutes. I slapped on a mustache and wig—didn't even bother to glue on the wig—put a couple of deep lines under my eyes and along my nose and that was about it. "But the longer I played him the longer it took me to get ready. Now it takes me 3!4 hours, and I have spent as much as 5 hours in makeup for a TV appearance. "The television camera is so inquisitive—and the illusion must be perfect, or you have nothing."
