Broadway’s “Shatner’s World”: My FT Review

From my Financial Times review: ‘The full title of the rather genial 90-minute solo show that has just touched down at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre is “Shatner’s World: We Just Live In It.” William Shatner, the writer and performer, is Star Trek’s original Captain Kirk. An admirably hale 80, the actor reveals that in the summer of 1969, after spending three seasons injecting frontier spirit into the galactic void, he was so broke he had to do summer stock theatre on Long Island. He remembers lying with a telly on his belly, staring at Neil Armstrong’s Moon walk and musing: “In some small, tiny way, I’d added to this moment.”
