Review: William Shatner Live On Stage
William Shatner, even at 87-years-old, seems to have boundless amounts of energy. He’s always working on something new and exciting. Right now he’s on a tour where he’s visiting cities and, following a screening of the classic film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Shatner is participating in a live-on-stage Q&A with audiences. My father and I attended the Philadelphia screening at The Academy of Music, and it was an excellent event.
Boldly Going Where No Mann Has Gone Before
This past Thursday my girlfriend and I went to go see a screening of Star Trek Into Darkness at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts. However, this was no ordinary movie screening. In addition to seeing a terrific film for the first time, we got to hear – and see – the Philadelphia Orchestra perform Michael Giacchino’s phenomenal score as the movie played.
When I Met William Shatner & Scott Bakula
Earlier in the year I attended my first Philadelphia Comic Con. Once I heard that all five Star Trek captains, including William Shatner and Scott Bakula, were going to be there, I knew I had to go. I grew up watching Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett on Quantum Leap and loved William Shatner as Denny Crane on Boston Legal.
As evidenced by the image above, I jumped at the opportunity to get a photo with these two legendary thespians, and it turned out great. After having our photo taken, Scott Bakula turned to me, shook my hand and thanked me. This caught me off guard because I was about to thank him. He was as nice as could be, and Shatner was his usual charming self. Once the hard copy of the photo was printed, Bakula and Shatner autographed it for me.
Meeting a celebrity is an unpredictable experience. You never know if the person you’re going to meet will live up to your expectations or let you down. Thankfully, I left this event with greater respect for these two men.
Have you ever met a celebrity? If so, who did you meet and how did it go?
