The L.A.-born writer, actor, and director is now on the road presenting Cinema Twain, the filmed version of his one-man show in which he portrays Mark Twain. The brief tour comes to the SVA Theatre on March 24, when Kilmer (Top Gun, True Romance) will introduce the ninety-minute film and stick around for an audience Q&A after. Tickets are $39; if you go for the VIP experience, you get to chat with Kilmer for $199 and take photos with him.
