Great show. Really enjoyed it. The script wonders a bit but as Mr. Kilmer explained afterwards, it's still a work in progress. First time at the Kirk Douglas theatre, very nice place to watch a show.

It was a series of quotes and one liners. When he started to get into stories that required an attention span longer than 5 seconds he would throw in another one liner. It was more caricature than character. Glad I didn't pay full price

Not only did I get a front row seat at the Kirk Douglas theatre but Val Kilmer, as Mark Twain, brought me on stage at some point! I was simply in the right place at the right time. Before I knew it, I was rubbing the pained shoulder of Mark Twain...continued

Val Kilmer delivers a powerful and poignant performance as the wise and witty American icon, Samuel Clemens. Kilmer, who wrote the one-man play, "Citizen Twain", frequently interacts with the audience during the show. It is as if Mark Twain has...continued
