|It is 2366, and Data the Android presents his campy musical adaptation of The Wrath of Khan. In this sci-fi send-up, an older Captain Kirk is experiencing a “coming of middle age” story when his nemesis Khan escapes exile and vows revenge. The ensuing cat-and-mouse game sparks an adventure that includes Vulcan tap dancing, Kirk’s long-lost son (a William Shatner impersonator), and of course… mutant space chickens!|
According to Greg Ehrhardt, OnStageBlog, here are the reasons “Why Star Trek Fans Should Be Excited for “Khan!!! The Musical!”:
It’s centered around the best Star Trek story of the canon
The musical appears to be in good hands with a true Star Trek fan.
It’s gunning for mainstream appeal
…I’m counting down the days.”
