PuSh International Performing Arts Festival & SFU Woodward's present:
L.A. Party / An Evening With William Shatner Asterisk
By Phil Soltanoff (New York, USA)

 L.A. Party and An evening with William Shatner Asterisk, conceived by New York theatre artist Phil Soltanoff, are two one-man shows-with no man.

 In L.A. Party a fanatical vegan falls off the purity wagon, plunging head first into a wild, drug-induced bender in the City of Angels. Six performers on stage produce a compelling composite human being to recount the hilarious short story, mixed with live video. L.A. Party is engaging storytelling at its most elemental, matched with innovative low-tech but high-concept special effects.

 In An evening with William Shatner Asterisk sound and video clips of Captain James T. Kirk of the original Star Trek series are stitched together to create a meticulously catalogued montage. Like an oracle, the young Shatner beams from the screen to ‘speak' about art, science and the human condition of the future. This is theatre conceived for a post-human world.

 "... mind-bending, gut-splitting ride. And then it gets funnier." - New York Theater Wire
