Val Kilmer appears in person to introduce the screening of his one-man play about Mark Twain.
The one-man show, Citizen Twain, played to sold-out houses at several performing arts venues in Los Angeles and now the writer, actor and director, Val Kilmer, presents a special film screening of the play.
A master of reinvention, Kilmer transforms himself into the “First American,” Mark Twain, in a comedic and moving performance that is both contemporary and reflective. The piece is based on the life of the man, Samuel Clemens, and of course his writings as Mark Twain. From his thoughts on politics (including his famous disdain for the U.S. Congress), to his family and ultimately his faith and God, Twain spins a series of yarns with his timeless satire and incomparable wit.
Mr. Kilmer introduces the 90-minute film and conducts a question and answer period following the screening. VIP ticket holders have an opportunity to meet Kilmer and chat after the Q&A.
