This is a great show with a contemporary flair. Val Kilmer did a really nice job writing and performing. He was only several feet away when he came up in the audience... continued

The acting and make up was geat. The story so,so. I went to see it because it was Val Kilmer. I really don't like any of Twain's work.

Entertaining performance comprised of Twain quips and aphorisms with 2 longer "stories" from Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Kilmer does a great job bringing the... continued

Great show and venue. Val Kilmer was amazing. A must see. More than just quotes and anecdotes as you might expect.

excellent performance from Kilmer. Story is a bit disjointed. Need to decide if he wants to tell the story of Samuel Clements or Mark Twain. Both good stories but two much to tell in 1.5 hours.

Loved it. Absolutely great theatre. My friend fell asleep ... Which shocked me. Sometimes a little difficult to hear everything .. However for me it was excellent.

Val Kilmer's one man play, Citizen Twain, was a hit with me. It seems the common complaint is that there was no storyline or that it "jumped around". I think that's the... continued

I loved the play. Val Kilmer is an awesome actor! We got to see him before the play started. He was mingling with his audience 20 mins before it started. Enjoyed every bit of it.

While Val Kilmer's talent as an actor is undeniable, I feel he needs help as a scriptwriter. The play had no storyline. At first, it seemed it was going to be a stand-up... continued

Val Kilmer was excellent as Mark Twain. He used Twain's humor integrated with current events. Many skits were extracted from Twain's writings and life events. Good mix of... continued

I liked it a lot. About 3/4 through I spaced out for a minute.It could just be me.I thought it was interesting. Oh, one big suggestion: naming the Kardashians is beneath him. They do not deserve any mention.

It was a memorable performance.
