Val Kilmer, famous for his portrayals of iconic characters such as Jim Morrison (The Doors), Doc Holliday (Tombstone) and Batman (Batman Forever), inhabits the spirit of another legendary American figure: Mark Twain. Exploring the famed author's wry humor — from politics to death, love, money, watermelons, God, racism and cats — Kilmer channels the wit and wisdom of the man considered to be the world’s greatest storyteller and the first stand-up comedian. Twain was a raconteur, and Kilmer presents his show in the style of a conversation.

“Mark Twain was the first person who talked the way we do,” Kilmer says. “Citizen Twain is a lively exchange with the audience, so my performance is fluid and somewhat free-form. That’s part of the fun. It’s a comedy and a character study.”

Every performance of Citizen Twain concludes with an audience talk-back while the actor has his extensive make-up removed in full view, and select tickets include a post-show meet and greet with the actor.

Citizen Twain at Valley Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 6 at 8pm. Tickets are $45-$150. Military veterans are $25 with the code USAVET. Valley Performing Arts Center is located at 18111 Nordhoff St., Northridge, CA 91330. For reservations and information, call 818-677-8800 or Join us on Facebook at; Follow us on Twitter @valekilmer
