Val Kilmer and Mark Twain fans are in for a treat, thanks to William Woods University and Central Bank.
Playing to what is expected to be a sell-out crowd, Kilmer will bring his one-man show, "Citizen Twain," straight from Los Angeles to Fulton. The performance is scheduled for 7-8:15 p.m. May 1 in historic Dulany Auditorium on the William Woods University campus.
Kilmer, who is coming to WWU to deliver the commencement address May 5, has offered to do a 15- to 30-minute question-and-answer session after the performance May 1.
Tickets are $50 each and seats are limited. For reservations, call (573) 592-1176 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Created and performed by Kilmer, the production, "delves into the heart and soul of Samuel Clemens and conjures forth the great spirit of Mark Twain, America's greatest storyteller."
Deeply entertaining, with great wit, song and prose, the play weaves Twain's biographical themes into a play that proclaims and takes joy in the marvel of words, which, as Twain says in the play, 'Form the ladder to my heaven.'
Kilmer, who has starred in such career-making roles as Batman, Jim Morrison and Doc Holliday, is also an experienced stage trouper. Off-Broadway, he has appeared in "The Slab Boys," "Henry IV Part I" and "Tis Pity She's a Whore," and in Los Angeles he played Moses in "The Ten Commandments: The Spectacle Musical."
