Charles Ross, writer/performer of the One Man Star Wars Trilogy, is bringing his show to Times Square, NYC! Ross' and the theater company's press release are inside...
Charles Ross announced this week on his website that he would be bringing his hit stand up act to New York City! Released today was this press release from the Midtown Theater confirming Charles Ross' show and giving us a list of dates and ticket sales!
Here's the press release from the Midtown Theater:
ONE-MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY IN TIMES SQUARE, NYC DECEMBER 2011
ONE-MAN STAR WARS™ TRILOGY
Written and performed by CHARLES ROSS
Canadian actor Charles Ross spent much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away, watching Star Wars videos over - and over - and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious show, One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy, where he single-handedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes!
One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy, written by Ross and directed by TJ Dawe, made its UK debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2006, where every night sold out. Since then, Ross has toured the world with the show, performing it over 1,200 times in more than 180 cities across four continents. It has been enjoyed successful off-Broadway and West End runs, been the highlight of official Star Wars Celebration events, entertained muddy festival goers at Glastonbury, sold out a return visit to the Edinburgh Fringe and appeared at numerous theatres around the globe, as far afield as Dubai and Sydney.
In 2009, Ross previewed his follow-up show, One-Man Lord Of The Rings, at the Edinburgh Fringe, where it was another sell-out success. No less a luminary than Sir Ian McKellen gave it Gandalf’s seal of approval, remarking, “If you liked The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you’ll love Charlie Ross’ version – and if you didn’t, well, at least his is shorter!” In recent months, Ross has taken that show down to Australia for a tour which included a residency in Sydney’s prestigious Opera House.
Now, after a two-year absence and two tours through the UK, Ross is bringing One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy back to New York City with a limited run at the Midtown Theater in Times Square throughout December. Whether you’re a committed Star Wars fan or simply want to enjoy a fast-paced, side-splitting evening that’s out of this world, make sure you don’t miss it!
“A delight for fans… but there’s enough here to satisfy casual observers too.” – The Independent

What does everyone think? Any New Yorkers out there planning on going?
The email that came with the press release mentioned that promotional codes will be released in the near future for tickets up to 50% of their original price for "die hard fans" of Star Wars. I'll try and keep an eye out for that information as well.
