One-Man Star Wars Trilogy
175 East Chestnut Street Chicago
Charles Ross will stun you with his ONE-MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY. Much of Ross' childhood was spent in a galaxy far, far away, watching Star Wars videos over - and over - and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hysterical ONE-MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY, where he single-handedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into one hilarious show! If you've already seen the movies, read the books and named your first-born Skywalker, Ross' zany take on Star Wars is right up your alley and sure to leave a lasting impression.

"...With the release of The Force Awakens on DVD and the revelation of a new plan to build the Lucas Museum over a section of McCormick Place (assuming the Illinois General Assembly acts with alacrity and puts faith in Rahm), interest in the Star Wars has been revived to its highest peak in over ten years. So now is a good time for Charles Ross's one-man adaptation of the original trilogy to return to Chicago, where it can be seen for the next few days at the Broadway Playhouse. Filled with onomatopoeia, hummed renditions of John Williams's music, and direct quotations, but lacking any props or scenery, this highly energetic romp is great fun for die-hard fans, and amusing for casual Star Wars consumers."

"...Charles Ross is the ultimate Star Wars fan. Chicago gets to experience his innovative storytelling for a limited time. Grab your light saber and board the Millennium Falcon before the Death Star explodes."
