Fandom Salute: “A Musical About Star Wars”
The Kirk @ Theatre Row (New York City, NY)
410 West 42nd Street
There’s never been a musical about “Star Wars” — no, the infamous holiday special definitely doesn’t count — but now all your Dagobah dreams are about to come true, as a pair of former Staten Island Blockbuster clerks bring both sides of the Force to the off-Broadway stage. Together Taylor, aka the “Millennial Falcon,” and the slightly-older Scott, or “Gen-X Winger,” have created an epic songfest that celebrates all the magic, mayhem and fandom fun of “Star Wars”. But faster than Han Solo can make the Kessel run, their costar — an actress and activist — suddenly lets loose with a galaxy-shaking admission, threatening the very existence of “A Musical About Star Wars”. Enjoy it, you will, at the Kirk Theatre in New York.
