Gord and I drove to Hamilton this afternoon to watch the 2pm Shatner's World.
Movie legend William Shatner will bring his one man show "Shatner's World: We Just Live in it" to Hamilton. The 90-minute show will take audiences on a voyage through Shatner’s life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and raconteur, known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and film.
Tickets were $100, which we thought was steep. Ticketmaster had a half price deal this week ... we figured Shatner was worth $50 a ticket.
Our seats were in row G in the middle of the aisle. They were filming this afternoon and this evening's appearances. The theatre wasn't full so they asked everyone to move forward for the cameras. So we ended up in row C, ten rows from the stage.
Shatner came out about 2:15pm and told stories of his life, starting with growing up in Montreal. He was quite energetic and animated. His chatting was coupled with videos and pictures from his past.
While I'm not a huge fan of Shatner's, I found him to be funny, likeable and engaging and it was interesting to hear him talk about his experiences. He's done a lot in his 81 years!
