More Information



Relentless comedy, great wit, soaring song and striking prose, Citizen Twain, created and performed by Val Kilmer, celebrates the marvel of Mark Twain’s words which, according to Kilmer’s Twain, “form the ladder to my heaven.”  Compelling storytelling was Twain’s lifeline and in Citizen Twain, those stories roll as unabated as a steamboat down the Mississippi. Kilmer’s hilarious and uncanny reincarnation of Mark Twain proves the news of Twain’s death has been greatly exaggerated.
