I must say,
William Shatner certainly put on a show.
Over the span of two hours
(which didn't feel at all like two hours)
he regaled the audience with stories of his life
(and make no mistake—this is his show,
all about things Shatner),
how he started in theater (and why … he does … those … dramatic pauses in … his speech!)
moved into film and television,
his dealing with death (his father,
a beloved horse,
his third wife)
and of course,
his “singing” career.
He did “sing” “Real,”
but did not “sing” “Space Oddity,”
“Major Tom (Coming Home)” or most regrettably—perhaps mercifully depending upon your view,
Other than not “singing” some of his more notorious “songs” it was fun.
And you never got the idea he's 84.
the auditorium wasn't even all that full.
How can you not like him?
Unless you're George Takei that is.
