“Citizen Twain” Screening and Q&A with Val Kilmer
Friday, March 24, 2017 7:30 pm
Event hosted by: Val Kilmer
Writer/Director/Actor Val Kilmer will appear in person to introduce a cinematic 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.
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 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 will introduce the 90-minute film and conduct a Q&A following the screening. VIP ticket holders will have an opportunity to meet Val, chat, and take photos following the Q&A.
Val Kilmer, the youngest actor ever accepted to Juilliard’s Drama Division, skyrocketed to international stardom playing Iceman in TOP GUN, Jim Morrison in THE DOORS, Doc Holliday in TOMBSTONE, and the Caped Crusader in BATMAN FOREVER. He wrote, produced, directed, and starred in CITIZEN TWAIN, a one-man play about Mark Twain as well as CINEMA TWAIN, the film of the play.
