Shatner's World: We Just Live In It 

When: Sun., Jan. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $32-152

He'll forever be known as Captain Kirk, but William Shatner's willingness to embrace his campy persona has made him more prolific than most actors a quarter of his 82 years. His one-man show, Shatner's World: We Just Live in It, has toured Australia, Canada and the United States.

Shatner had one of his most acclaimed projects with Chapel Hill's Ben Folds on the 2004 album Has Been, which included a cover of Pulp's "Common People." It reinvigorated Shatner's oft-derided musical career. "I fell in love with Ben Folds and his family—we've remained friends over the years and I would love to perform with him again," says Shatner, who recently released the prog-rock album Ponder the Mystery with Billy Sherwood of Yes.

He's less enthusiastic about Councilman David Waddell of Indian Trail, N.C., who recently made headlines for turning in a resignation letter written in Klingon: "If he wishes to reach a large audience to express his opinion, he's got a very limited audience of five."

Shatner was more intrigued to hear that noted Klingon language authority Lawrence M. Schoen will be in Raleigh for illogiCon this weekend: "It brings to mind what is language, and how is language devised and can you have subtlety in a made-up language? It's a really interesting creative question." —Zack Smith
