William Shatner, an internationally known icon and raconteur, who is known to many as Captain Kirk on Star Trek, will be in Texas for several performances of his one man show, Shatner’s World, in January.
In an interview with Guidry News Service, Shatner said that he is looking forward to his performance at the Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston on January 6. Listen

“It’s a beautiful theater,” Shatner said. “I will make you laugh and cry.”
He said his program will feature a variety of subjects, “like love and motorcycles and comedy and death, music and Star Trek and horses; I do a big thing on horses. And Boston Legal; and so it goes on.”
Shatner said that he has been acting since he was a small child. He still attends Star Trek conventions, but that his role as Captain Kirk is only a small part of his life now.
“My life has broadened in the many years since Star Trek and I’ve done a variety of things,” he said. “Documentaries, for example, are occupying my life. I am directing documentaries and fashioning them. We’re selling a comedy show that I hope will be on television soon. Movies. The whole gamut. I’m even doing a podcast.”
He said the podcast will be available on WilliamShatner.com soon.
In addition to Shatner’s performance at The Grand, he will take Shatner’s World to the Lutcher Theater in Orange, the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio and the Paramont Theatre in Austin.
