Val Kilmer Appears In-Person @ CINEMA TWAIN in San Jose in Broadway VAL KILMER APPEARS IN-PERSON @ CINEMA TWAIN IN SAN JOSE
San Jose Stage Company
12/29-12/30/2016
CINEMA TWAIN Meet Val Kilmer & See Film of His One-Man Play About Mark Twain Thursday December 29, 2016 7:30 PM Friday, December 30, 2016 8:00 PM Val Kilmer — famous for his portrayals of iconic characters such as Jim Morrison (THE DOORS), Doc Holliday (TOMBSTONE) and Batman (BATMAN) — will appear in person at San Jose Stage Company on Thursday, December 29 and Friday, December 30 to introduce two special film screenings of his one-man play about Mark Twain. The one-man show, CITIZEN TWAIN, has played to sold-out houses at performing arts venues nationwide. 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 will introduce the 90-minute film and conduct a question and answer period with the audience following the screening. For an additional $50.00 per person, VIP ticket holders will have an opportunity to meet Val, chat, and take photos after the Q&A.

Orpheum Theatre

Giraffes strut, birds swoop, gazelles leap - the entire Serengeti comes to life. And as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly rises from the stage. This is THE LION KING. A spectacular visual feast, this adaptation of Disney's much-loved film transports you to a dazzling world that explodes with glorious colors, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba, and his epic journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands. The Lion King won six 1998 Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Scenic Design (Richard Hudson), Best Costume Design (Julie Taymor), Best Lighting Design (Donald Holder), Best Choreography (Garth Fagan) and Best Direction of a Musical, making Taymor the first woman in theatrical history bestowed with the honor.
