William Shatner Humbly Hams It Up at the Orpheum in Shatner's World

William “Bad Billy” Shatner's one-man show Shatner's World played for one big night at the Orpheum Theatre on Sunday to an audience filled with young fans, old fans, and more than a few tolerant significant others. And everyone had a great time. There was a fair amount of get-it-out-of-the-way Star Trek pandering, such as the theme being played twice — though, in fairness, the second time was while playing a clip of Shatner waking up the crew of the Discovery. Some would call including this in a show about your life to be the sign of a massive ego. Well, perhaps, but we would also call it adhering to the Bialystockian principle, “Flaunt it if ya got it!” Did NASA ask you to record a wake-up call for the last day of the last space shuttle mission ever? Okay, then.
