If you can't find something fun to see and do in Cleveland, you aren't trying. In terms of traveling roadshows alone, the next months will bring us performances from Bruce Springsteen, Cirque du Soleil, and Sesame Street Live.
Then there's William Shatner, who's bringing his one-man show to the State Theatre on Playhouse Square on April 14.
Shatner's World: We Just Live In It is billed as a two-hour voyage through Captain James T. Kirk's real-life life: from his start as a Shakespearean stage actor to Star Trek ,T.J. Hooker, Boston Legal, Priceline shilling, a recording "career", and far, far beyond.
Personally, we've always had a soft spot for the now-81-year-old Shatner. Eccentric but entertaining, he's sort of like that quirky uncle that you see over the holidays: You're never entirely sure if you're laughing with him or at him, but whichever it is, he just seems to love the attention.
Turns out, that's pretty much the reaction the show is getting on Broadway, where it opened in the Music Box Theater last week. Huff Post gives it a kindly review, here.

Prices range from $29 to $299 — which we assume includes a private tour of the Enterprise or at least a discount on a hotel room. — Elaine T. Cicora
