Val Kilmer's acting was enjoyable and he brought Mark Twain home in his show. As some other reviews have indicated, the storytelling does seem to meander a bit. I took it as the natural occurrences of an older storyteller--ideas lead to other...continued

I loved seeing Val Kilmer doing Mark Twain -- He's very good. There's some slow spots, all in all I enjoyed the experience. The Q&A afterwards was very enjoyable along with watching his make-up artist remove his make-up -- it was a great addition.

Val Kilmer brought Mark Twain, alias Samuel Clemens back to life for an evening. Certainly his likeness was strikingly accurate. Was he really that much of an alcoholic?
Two matters:
1.Samuel Clemens was caught up in inventions spending a...continued

Good seats, audience was involved in the show as various times.

Our seats were almost on the stage, but considering that Twain/Kilmer are constantly moving, it turned out that our seats were quite good. Kilmer's acting is superb, BUT we were terribly annoyed that Kilmer's political views...i.e., lambasting...continued

This was a wonderful experience for a Mark twain enthusiast. Very much akin to the first time I saw Mark Twain Tonight. It was particularly fun to have "Twain" schmoozing in the audience before the show, and to have Val Kilmer Q and A after the...continued

Val Kilmer portrayed Twain as how I have always imagined Twain to be in my head. Stellar performance and Kilmer is wonderful w/ improv. Truly enjoyed it!!

Val Kilmer was almost unrecognizable as Mark Twain and really seemed to embody the character. The play--which essentially is his performance--is a work in progress and meandered a bit and didn't keep my interest throughout. Overall , though, it...continued

A terrific performance! Val Kilmer IS Mark Twain!!
His body language and singing along with his brilliant acting and set design make this a must-see!
Thanks, Mr. Kilmer, and welcome back to Culver City.

Only so-so. A Val Kilmer show more than a piece about Mark Twain.

Val Kilmer was unrecognizable in his Mark Twain persona. He casually sat in audience before the show and had his make up removed on stage after the show, making the theater experience more intimate with the audience. I enjoyed the combining of...continued

Val Kilmer was outstanding both as a humorist, actor and director. He engaged with the audience members prior to his performance as well as engaged in a Q&A after his standing ovation. His hard work and dedication to the memory of Mark Twain was...continued
