From Iceman, Batman, Jim Morrison, and Doc Holliday to Citizen Twain.

For four performances only, Val Kilmer will portray “the greatest American humorist of his age” and “the father of American literature” at the Pasadena Playhouse.

Each performance will end with a live post-show Q&A with Kilmer, though for an extra 25 bucks, you can secure a VIP Meet & Greet Pass. Hmmm…

Zora Neale Hurston wrote one of the most moving, lyrical, magical, and disturbing novels of the early twentieth century with Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937).
