Nice to see Val working. Event had an experimental edge to it. VK appears to be a bit of a Twain scholar although I daresay he is not an academic. Still, few professors would sing several spirituals to bringMT to life. There were few negatives but I believe MT was hard w his family. Huck & Jim have been called homoerotic and that was left unturned. " Hick. Finn " has been called a souped up minstrel show and indeed few blacks attended. Theatre had st noise and I struggled to hear occasionally.
Thanx for doing a cultural piece Val & co.
I tell the Tibet joke daily.

I would have enjoyed this show more if it had not turned out to be a workshop for which the audience were asked to give feedback, if Klimer had been able to remember his lines at the start and if he had not dropped his voice at the punchlines,...continued
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.
