Actor, singer, voiceover megastar, "Rescue 911" host, celebrity spokesman and living icon William Shatner will bring his one-man show, "Shatner's World: We Just Live in It" to the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville at 8 p.m. on Jan. 11, injecting a bit of starpower and his trademark stilted delivery to warm everyone's spirits in those post-Christmas doldrums.
According to the WAC press release:
The 90-minute show will take audiences on a voyage through the life and career of William Shatner, who is known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and film. This is a rare chance to witness this one-man force of nature as he showcases his laugh-out-loud humor, signature storytelling, and inimitable style. Through anecdotes, songs, jokes and even some poignant moments, you will experience this legend’s phenomenal path from classically trained actor to cultural icon, brilliantly creating the larger-than-life and most important character he has ever played, William Shatner.
Here's hoping Shatner will somehow work his utterly transformative rendition of Pulp's "Common People" into the program.
