LAS VEGAS (June 3, 2014) – MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will host television and movie legend William Shatner for a three-night engagement when he performs his one-man show “SHATNER’S WORLD: WE JUST LIVE IN IT” June 19 – 21 at the Hollywood Theatre. In April 2011, Shatner launched what would eventually become his hugely popular stage show in Australia and New Zealand, followed by tours in Canada and more than 50 cities in the United States.
Tickets priced at $69.99, $79.99 and $99.99, plus service charges and taxes, are now on sale. VIP meet-and-greet packages which include booth seating are available for $199, plus service charges and taxes. Tickets can be purchased at any MGM Grand ticketing outlet, online at mgmgrand.com or ticketmaster.com, or by phone at (866) 740-7711 or (702) 891-7777.
Known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on television and the big screen, Shatner will take his audiences on a 90-minute voyage through his life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and personality.
“I’ve done this one-man show on Broadway and in many cities across the United States,” said Shatner. “At the curtain call, the audiences’ reaction, their love and appreciation, moved me to tears. This show has been one of the highlights of my life.”
Shatner is an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, philanthropist and horseman. In 1966, he introduced the character of Captain James T. Kirk in the television series “Star Trek.” The series became a film franchise with Shatner as Kirk in seven movies, one of which he directed. He also played the title role in the hit series “T.J. Hooker” before hosting TV’s first reality-based series “Rescue 911.” Shatner won two Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on “The Practice” and “Boston Legal” and received four additional Emmy nominations as well as Golden Globes and SAG Awards.
Off screen, Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers in both the fiction and non-fiction genres. His autobiography “Up Till Now” was a New York Times best-seller. In 2011 he released “Shatner Rules,” a collection of rules illustrated with stories from his personal life and career. Shatner’s latest book, “Hire Yourself,” is scheduled to be released later this spring.
