Within the giantess’s gilded jewel box that is the Auditorium Theatre, award-winning actor, director, author, and recording artist William Shatner descends from his perch of cultural iconography to lead a two-hour voyage through his legendary career. During the one-man tour de force, the television and big-screen superstar fascinates fans with a collection of anecdotes, songs, and moments of reflection, briefly removing his William Shatner costume to expose William Shatner for who he really is: William Shatner. The actor’s one-of-a-kind humor, signature storytelling, and musical selections combine to shed light on a career that has unfurled across seven decades and showcased the genesis of Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek, Emmy Award–winning roles on The Practice and Boston Legal, and nearly 30 bestselling books. Pastoral murals, vaulted ceilings, and fields of saffron velour outfit one of Chicago’s most opulent performance halls, fully restored after a period of midcentury neglect caused by environmentally hazardous levels of grandeur.
