Charles Ross' Star Wars Trilogy at McCarter Theatre

Travel to a galaxy far, far away with this one-man comic voyage through Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi !

Make sure your light sabers are ready, because Charles Ross (Above) is bringing his wildly entertaining One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to McCarter Theatre on Tuesday, November 8 (2011) at 8 pm. The show has been performed all over the world since 2002, from London to Dubai to George Lucas-endorsed Star Wars conventions. When it appeared off-Broadway, Ross's success prompted a licensing agreement.

In his hilarious, kinetic solo piece, Canadian writer/performer Ross plays all the characters, recreates the effects, sings the music, flies the ships, and fights both sides of the battles from the original Star Wars trilogy, punctuating his virtuosic performance with captivating factoids and editorial asides. No costumes, no props, no sets just Ross using his yoga-limber body, remarkable knack for voices, subtle changes in facial expression, and manic levels of energy to put his own distinct stamp on the Star Wars universe.

Did he spend too much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away? Well, let's just say that by age 10, he had seen the first Star Wars film more than 400 times and committed virtually every line to memory. Ross has since parlayed this childhood obsession into a one-of-kind theatrical piece, which he has performed in more than 180 cities around the globe. Where does he get his strength? It flows from the Force, of course.
Patrons are encouraged to dress as their favorite Star Wars character.

Tickets for One-Man Star Wars Trilogy start as low as $20 (student tickets $15 with proper ID) and can be purchased online at; by calling (609) 258-2787; or in person at the McCarter Theatre Ticket Office at 91 University Place in Princeton.
