This is a great show with a contemporary flair. Val Kilmer did a really nice job writing and performing. He was only several feet away when he came up in the audience and you would never know that he was only 53. We saw the Hal Holbrook show...continued

It was rather amateurish. He mixed in current references. I feel he should have stuck to the real comments of Mark Twain for the 19th century.

Didn't love it, not sure why. Love Mark Twain writings, don't know Val Killmer as an actor.
Hearing device not working and I missed many punch lines. Judging from the reaction of the audience I was "odd man out." I ama hard to please.

The acting and make up was geat. The story so,so. I went to see it because it was Val Kilmer. I really don't like any of Twain's work.

Entertaining performance comprised of Twain quips and aphorisms with 2 longer "stories" from Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Kilmer does a great job bringing the character to life. Hard to go wrong quoting Twain. But if I had some criticisms it...continued

Totally enjoyed the script and the presentation. Great tix from Goldstar, and I even got free "Doris Day Parking" right across the street from the theatre...(not usually the case)
I may even go see it again when he moves over to the Pasadena...continued

Loved it. Absolutely great theatre. My friend fell asleep ... Which shocked me. Sometimes a little difficult to hear everything .. However for me it was excellent.

I loved the play. Val Kilmer is an awesome actor! We got to see him before the play started. He was mingling with his audience 20 mins before it started. Enjoyed every bit of it.

Val Kilmer is a master and apparently has been developing this project for years.
I had no ide he had written and directed it at well and I thought it was flawless. The Q&A afterwards enabled the audience to contribute making for a very...continued

Val Kilmer was excellent as Mark Twain. He used Twain's humor integrated with current events. Many skits were extracted from Twain's writings and life events. Good mix of 19th century humor and commentary with 21st century events. Shows how social...continued

My son and I were looking forward to this show. We were a little worried that we would be disappointed since we are big Twain fans and have seen many takes on the the Twain character. But we were both entertained before, during and after Kilmer's...continued

Great show and venue. Val Kilmer was amazing. A must see. More than just quotes and anecdotes as you might expect.

At the very least, an interesting night at the theater. Val Kilmer was very engaging and the show was unique. It wasn't a period piece because the play starts with Nirvana music playing and he talks about Paula Deen being a racist. The audience...continued

Val Kilmer "is" Mark Twain for 90 minutes! I was on the edge of my seat not wanting to miss a word. The performance was spectacular and the insight to an important part of our history was enlightening. The show after the show should not be missed!

excellent performance from Kilmer. Story is a bit disjointed. Need to decide if he wants to tell the story of Samuel Clements or Mark Twain. Both good stories but two much to tell in 1.5 hours.

Val Kilmer disappears into the character and captures the wit and charm of Mark Twain in this delightful play. Had to see it again! Standing ovation well deserved! I highly recommend it!

One of my favorite theatre's in LA--top 3? top 2? Either way, the show definitely lived up to the hype. Val Kilmer is excellent. He really makes you believe that he's Mark Twain incarnate. And the story of the play, which mimics Twain's original...continued
