Through anecdotes, songs, jokes and even some poignant moments, you will experience William Shatner 's phenomenal path from classically trained Shakespearean actor to cultural icon, brilliantly creating the larger-than-life and most important character he has ever played, William Shatner.
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will host television and movie legend William Shatner for a three-night engagement when he performs his one-man show “SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE IN IT” June 19 – 21 at the Hollywood Theatre. In April 2011, Shatner launched what would eventually become his hugely popular stage show in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. In 2012, the show opened on Broadway and has been performed in more than 50 cities in the United States.
Known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and the big screen, Shatner will take his audiences on a 90-minute voyage through his life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and personality.
Shatner is an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, philanthropist and horseman. In 1966, he introduced the character of Captain James T. Kirk in the television series “Star Trek.” The series became a film franchise with Shatner as Kirk in seven movies, one of which he directed. He also played the title role in the hit series “T.J. Hooker” before hosting TV’s first reality-based series “Rescue 911.” Shatner won two Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on “The Practice” and “Boston Legal” and received four additional Emmy nominations as well as Golden Globes and SAG Awards.
Off screen, Shatner has authored nearly 30 bestsellers in both the fiction and non-fiction genres. His autobiography “Up Till Now” was a New York Times bestseller and in 2011 he released “Shatner Rules,” a collection of rules illustrated with stories from his personal life and career. Shatner’s latest book, “Hire Yourself,” is scheduled to be released later this fall.
