What would it be like to watch the original Star Wars trilogy (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi) condensed into a 75-minute Broadway comedy parody? And on top of that, what if all 40 characters in the movies were played by one man?
It might sound impossible, but the One Man Star Wars Trilogy has been performed around the world for 16 years. Conceptualised by Canadian actor Charles Ross, the critically acclaimed parody sees Ross doing it all: singing the music, flying the ships, fighting lightsaber battles and telling the Star Wars story at light speed. You know you’re in for a good time when it’s even received official endorsement from Lucas Films, original creator and producer of the Star Wars franchise!
Whether you can quote all of Luke Skywalker’s lines verbatim or don’t know a lightsaber from a droid, this hilarious performance on 22 April at The Wembley Penang is bound to transport you to a galaxy far, far away.
