From the very start of his entrance while the audience took their seats till the end his performance was superb! The stage was perfect, the visits from "G", the bar (very clever), the modern tech with pictures etc, even the red apple.

Highly enjoyable, engaging and charming show. It reminded me of what a madcap genius Mr Sam Clemens was and makes me want to re-read, well pretty much everything he wrote! His outlook of the world was solid, compassionate and humor-filled. Val...continued

Loved this play! Our seats were in the 4th row.... so the experience was up close and personal. Original, funny and at times emotionally moving.

My adult daughter & I saw this unexpected version of Mark Twain.

It was fascinating! The mix & resemblance between character & actor must've been exhausting, as Val Kilmer became Mark Twain. Later, he transitioned back to himself step-by-step...continued

Nice, intimate theater. Val Kilmer stayed for 15 minutes after the production to answer questions (many were silly questions like "Do your friends call you Iceman?"). Play itself is not all that coherent, more of a character study with Twain...continued

Pure genius! A brilliant portrayal of a brilliant man. A superb actor, surpassed only by his writing and directing talents. Tony and Broadway worthy!

Thought provoking and comedic throughout the show. I found my mind taken on a journey back into time and my curiousity, about who exactly was Mark Twain, peaked. And i have admired Val Kilmer from the tv screen my whole life. He even opens up for...continued

Val Kilmer was fantastic in the way that he brought Mark Twain to life. Witty, insightful, often humorous ... Mr. Kilmer's performance was a joy to behold! I am recommending Citizen Twain to anyone who truly loves to be entertained!

Beautiful theatre and a wonderfully intimate setting for Val Kilmer's "Citizen Twain". A modern take on Samuel Clemens's life and philosophies. Loved the opening with him singing the first verse of "Smells LIke Teen Spirit". I absolutely...continued

Brilliant. The connection between past and present was seamlessly woven throughout. You didn't want it to end and waited for the next piece of Twain's intellectual recollections. What was unexpected (sorry Val) was the outstanding acting -...continued
