William Shatner Live!

Shatner 1

I'm just back from "William Shatner Live"! At the gorgeous State Theatre, Sydney, venue of the gala premiere nights for both "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" and "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" back in the good ol' days.

Very entertaining. Highlight of the night: Shatner did a spoken word version of Men at Work's song, "Down Under", which led into a recitation of former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam's speech following his Dismissal by the Governor-General in the 70s, which led into a spoken word portion of our national song, "Waltzing Matilda".

I felt that the co-host of the evening overstepped hjis place at times and didn't work on the lines being fed to him. But Shatner was the consumate guest in many ways. I feel priviledged to have finally seen him in the flesh. One more thing off the bucket list! --- and we were sitting over the other side of the same balcony!
