Oh Captain, My Captain
Interested in a voyage? It’s a voyage through the life and times of Canada’s most famous captain – Captain Kirk, that is. If you’ve no plans for Valentine’s Day, perhaps a trip to New York to see the opening of Shatner’s World: We Just Live in Itat the Music Box Theatre might be in order. William Shatner is set to perform the solo two-hour show on Broadway from Feb. 14 to March 4.
Audiences can’t seem to get enough of Shatner – or is it that Shatner can’t give it up? In an interview for our October issue, Shatner, an octogenarian himself, had the following advice: “If you’re 80, get out of bed. Get up and get out. You don’t need to sleep.” In the last year, as actor, singer and writer, he’s released his fourth studio album, Seeking Major Tom; published a book, Shatner Rules: Your Key to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World At Large; toured North America with his one-man show; and now back to Broadway. That’s right. Shatner started as a stage actor, first as a Shakespearean actor in Stratford and later on stage in two Broadway shows. He’s done it all, and now theatre goers can hear all about it.
