Shatner is Back on Broadway!

Dave Itzkoff writing for the New York times reports on a subject near and dear to all of us. William (James Kirk) Shatner at 80 is returning to a forum that he hasn't been involved in for over 50 years....playing on Broadway. Not just playing mind you but staring in a show called "Shatner's World: We Just Linve in it"

Shatner has not be on a Broadway stage since he played Paul Sevigne in the 1961 staging of “A Shot in the Dark” Now his one man show will begin performances some time in February 2012.

From the article:

  • (the show)  would be presented at the Music Box Theater, and will offer the actor’s take on his journey “from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and raconteur, known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and film,”
Performances are due to preview on 2/14 and open of 2/16 and will run in limited engagements until March 4.

Thanks to Xnewsman for the heads up!
