Described as a two-hour voyage through Shatner’s life and career, from Shakespearian stage actor to Star Trek icon and beyond, the show begins performances Feb. 14, with official opening set for Feb. 16.
Shatner celebrated his 80th birthday in March last year. He last appeared on Broadway in 1962, with Julie Harris and Walter Matthau in A Shot in the Dark.
“My plan has always been to return to Broadway every 50 years,” said Shatner. “I can’t ask my fans to wait longer for me than Halley’s Comet, so I’m coming back.”
Producers on the show are Innovation Arts & Entertainment, Larry A. Thompson Organization, Adam Troy Epstein, Larry A. Thompson, Seth Keyes and Josh Sherman. A director and creative team have not been announced.
Watch Shatner and Patrick Stewart discuss their experience as Star Trek captains.
