He is one of Hollywood's most recognizable figures and a major philanthropist. From "Star Trek" to "Boston Legal," Shatner has entertained generations of television viewers. In this humorous one-man show he will recount his phenomenal path from classically trained Shakespearean actor to modern cultural icon.
