Last night the four of us went to see the one-man Star Wars Trilogy Show and it was phenomenal! It was at The Pantages Theater in Minneapolis, and when we arrived there were two storm troopers outside the front door welcoming people, and posing for photos. I was kicking myself for not bringing our camera. Inside, the usher was dressed as a Jedi. The star of the show was incredible. He used no props at all -- simply became each character through changes in his voice, posture, gestures, and attitude. His R2D2 voice was uncanny. His C3PO walk was unmistakable. His Chewbacca attitude was perfect. And his light saber sound effects could not have been better. He had the audience eating out of his hand with his smart and quick wit. He told the story lines of all three movies (the first three made, numbers 4, 5, and 6 in the total sequence) in just over one hour. It was amazing.

The boys beamed through the show - it will become, I believe, one of their favored childhood memories. If you have the opportunity to go see this show, and if you are pretty familiar with the movies (if you aren't, you'd be lost during the show), I highly recommend it.
