Mark Twain and Val Kilmer are coming to Pasadena together.
In a brief run at the Pasadena Playhouse, the actor who once donned a Batman suit will portray one of the most well known American writers in Val Kilmer: Citizen 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,” the Playhouse says on its website.
A post show meet and greet with Kilmer is available as an add on for all performances.
The Pasadena Playhouse makes the disclaimer that the show contains profanity, stage smoke and fog, the sound of gunfire, and mature content.
Citizen Twain runs from Aug. 21-24 and is 90 minutes long, without an intermission. Each day’s performance is at 8 p.m., with a 4 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Aug. 24.
