The Shat is headed to Broadway.
William Shatner is bringing his one-man show, Shatner’s World: We Just Live in It, to New York next month.
The two-hour show, according to press notes, will “take audiences on a voyage through Shatner’s life and career, 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.”
Returning to Broadway for the first time since 1962, Shatner said in a statement, “I’ve been pretty busy since I last played the Music Box. I’ve been refurbished; I hope the theatre has been too. My plan has always been to return to Broadway every 50 years. I can’t ask my fans to wait for me longer than Halley’s Comet, so I’m coming back.”
The show will run at the Music Box Feb. 14-March 4 with an official opening scheduled for Feb. 16.
