Wertz, Show Founder and Promoter.  “After the great response fans had for the 501st at our first show in 2010, it was an easy decision to expand and include the “good-guys” for our first multi-day extravaganza event.”

One-Man Star Wars Trilogy Hits Boston

Press Release:

Get your light sabers ready, Boston, because Charles Ross is bringing his wildly entertaining One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline on Monday, November 15 at 8 pm.  The quirky show is part of OnStage @ the Coolidge, a program bringing dynamic live performances to one of New England’s premier independent cinemas and cultural arts organizations.  Members of the New England Garrison, the local chapter of the 501st Legion, a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization composed of and operated by Star Wars fans, will make a special appearance in their costumes. 

In his hilarious, kinetic solo piece, Canadian writer/performer Ross plays all the characters, recreates the effects, sings from John Williams’ score, flies the ships, and fights both sides of the battles from the original Star Wars trilogy, punctuating his virtuosic performance with captivating factoids and editorial asides. No costumes, no props, no sets – just Ross using his yoga-limber body, remarkable knack for voices, subtle changes in facial expression, and manic levels of energy to put his own distinct stamp on the Star Wars universe.  Did he spend too much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away?  Well, let’s just say that by age 10, he had seen the first Star Wars film more than 400 times and committed virtually every line to memory. Ross has since parlayed this childhood obsession into a one-of-kind theatrical piece, which he has performed in more than 180 cities around the globe. Where does he get his strength? It flows from the Force, of course.

Boston Comic Con has free passes to give away so be sure to watch their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter (@BostonComicCon)!!

Admission: $20 regular/$17 Coolidge Corner Theatre members.  For more information and advance tickets, visit www.coolidge.org/onstage.  Tickets are also available at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard Street, Brookline, Massachusetts.  Phone: 617/734-2500.
