Val Kilmer in Citizen Twain at the Kirk Douglas Theatre Reviews & Ratings
Quite boring. Twain provides so much rich material-only so little of it was used. Also any actor (even a good one) needs a director. The fact that this production was self-directed was very obvious.report as inappropriate
The best way to describe the show is being weirdly delicious. It is funny, sad, and poignant. Val Kilmer does an excellent job of keeping you entertained, and educating you about the life of Mark Twain. Definitely recommend it.report as inappropriate
This performance was wonderful. Don't know how long it will be at the Douglas but it does go 'on the road.' Highly recommend.report as inappropriate
Great show! Val was fabulous at engaging the audience. Our family loved it!report as inappropriate
interesting mix of historical and current topics. Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn segments very goodreport as inappropriate
Masterful job of impersonation by Val Kilmer. He re-creates and re-invents a Mark Twain that manages to be both contemporary and true-to-his-historical-period at the same time.report as inappropriate
It was both surprising and endearing to see Val Kilmer interact with the audience. He did a nice job of sustaining the character of Samuel Clemens throughout the piece.report as inappropriate
Quite a remarkable production considering Val Kilmer wrote and performed the program.
During the performance, he involved the audience. Especially liked the Q&A after the performance while his makeup was being removed.
The show was AMAZING! Val Kilmer is completely unrecognizable in face. voice, body movement, EVERYTHING. But geez Louise Goldstar, why do you always always always put me in the back row?report as inappropriate
Val Kilmer is pompous, pretentious and beyond self indulgent in his portrayal of Mark Twain as a loser alcoholic. Where is Hal Holbrook when you need him? Complete waste of time!report as inappropriate
Amazing performance by Mr. Kilmer. Soooo funny but also serious and thought-provoking at times. Perfect length of time. And the Q&A afterwards was cool. Highly recommend it!report as inappropriate
The material used by the performer was okay, I saw better in the past. Val Kilmer was very good portraying the character of Mark Twain. It was entertaining. Love the Kirk Douglas theatre, but the parking was to far for the people with handicap needs.report as inappropriate
Great performance and yep - More than a 100 yrs later, Twain is still relevant today!report as inappropriate
