Val Kilmer in Citizen Twain at Center Stage Theater
Mark Twain lives again in Citizen Twain, Val Kilmer's (The Doors, Tombstone, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) remarkable portrait of a most remarkable man. Decked out in his trademark white suit and walrus moustache, Kilmer-as-Twain does more than just repeat the author's beloved bon mots and fabled anecdotes. In this production, written and directed by Kilmer, Twain turns his eye on modern times as well, giving a "Twainian" perspective on the goings-on of today. Audiences across the country have raved at the totality and ingenuity of Kilmer's portrayal, another highlight in the actor's diverse career that includes such iconic roles as Jim Morrison, Doc Holliday and Batman. Experience a legendary American firsthand in these workshop performances at Center Stage Theater that conclude with an audience talkback, as Kilmer has his extensive makeup removed in full view.
