William Shatner beams down to Broadway this spring, bowing a solo show called “Shatner’s World: We Just Live In It.”
Show sneaks in for a quick, 19-perf stint at the Music Box Theater during the gap between “Private Lives,” which shuttered Dec. 31, and incoming tenant “One Man, Two Guvnors,” the London transfer that kicks off a run in April.
Shatner hasn’t appeared on Broadway since starring in the 1961 play “A Shot in the Dark” alongside Walter Mathau and Julie Harris.
For his new, two-hour solo outing, Shatner will chronicle his life and a career that’s moved from classical stage work to “Star Trek” to current forays into music, including last year’s album of heavy metal covers, “Seeking Major Tom.”
“Shatner’s World” runs Feb. 14-March 4, with a press opening set for Feb. 16.
