Laurie and I went to see William Shatner's one-man show "Shatner's World, We Just Live in It..." this evening. Though there are some pictures and video clips on the projection screen behind him, the majority of the show is Shatner bouncing back and forth across the stage telling stories and anecdotes about his life and career.
The stories ranged from his first acting role at age six through his days playing Denny Crane on Boston Legal. I particularly enjoyed his story about starring on Broadway in The World of Suzie Wong with actress France Nuyen. On the other hand, his story about a race horse he owned seemed to go on forever. And while he makes some comments about his years as Captain Kirk, Trekkies expecting most of the show to be about it will be disappointed.
All in all, though, it was an entertaining two hours and it is always nice to see someone live who I've watched on TV for many years.
