Television and movie superstar William Shatner will bring SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE IN IT to Broadway’s Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street) for a limited engagement from February 14 - March 4.  Opening night is February 16.

{module ad_left_body}The two-hour show 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, William Shatner says, “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. " 

SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE IN IT is produced by Innovation Arts & Entertainment, Larry A Thompson Organization, Adam Troy Epstein, Larry A Thompson, Seth Keyes, and Josh Sherman.   The creative team will be announced shortly.

William Shatner is an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, philanthropist and horseman.   In 1966, he originated the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the TV series Star Trek, which spawned a film franchise where he returned as Kirk in seven of the movies, one of which he directed.   He played the title role in the hit series T.J. Hooker before hosting TV’s first reality-based series, Rescue 911.   He won Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on The Practice and Boston Legal and received four more Emmy nominations as well as Golden Globe and SAG Award nods. His interview series, Shatner's Raw Nerve, aired on Bio, and he recorded the critically acclaimed album Has Been. The Milwaukee Ballet performed “Common People,” which was set to songs fromthe record; the event is featured in the documentary Gonzo Ballet.  Seeking Major Tom, featuring a number of heavy metal covers and songs by U2, Frank Sinatra, Queen and Pink Floyd, was released last year. Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers. His autobiography, Up Till Now, was a New York Times best-seller, and Shatner Rules was released in 2011.  His comic book series,William Shatner Presents is based on his novels Tek War, Man O’ War, and Quest for Tomorrow, along with a new title: Chimera.  He has also been successful in another area - horse breeding.  A dedicated breeder of American Quarter horses, he has had enormous success with the American Saddlebred, developing and riding world champions and has won numerous world championships in several events.  He united his passions for horses and philanthropy with the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, benefitting L.A.-based children’s charities. He appeared on Broadway in A Shot in the Dark, The World of Suzie Wong, and Tamburlaine the Great. And no, there is nothing this man does not do.
