NEW YORK, N.Y. -- William Shatner is boldly going back to where he once appeared — Broadway.
The actor, singer and writer best known as James T. Kirk on “Star Trek” will star in a one-man show called “Shatner’s World: We Just Live in It.”
Previews begin Feb. 14 and it runs at the Music Box Theatre until March 4.
Producers said Tuesday “The two-hour show will take audiences on a voyage through Shatner’s life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and raconteur.”
Shatner was last on Broadway in “A Shot in the Dark” in 1961. The former “T.J. Hooker” star won an Emmy for his work on “Boston Legal.”
His other Broadway credits include “Tamburlaine the Great” in 1956 and “The World of Suzie Wong” two years later.
