The Force Be With You at Long Wharf


By the age of 10, Charles Ross had seen the original Star Wars over 400 times, committing the show to memory.

That relatively arcane body of knowledge came to fantastic use with his creation of The One Man Star Wars Trilogy, playing on Long Wharf Theatre’s Mainstage from July 14 to 26.

The One Man Star Wars Trilogy is a one hour, high energy, non-stop blast through the three films "Star Wars: A New Hope," "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."

Ross plays all of the characters, recreates the effects, sings the music, flies the ships and fights both sides of the battles. Since its first tour across the North American fringe circuit, One Man Star Wars has performed more than 1,200 times in more than 180 cities across four continents.

The One Man Star Wars Trilogy is part of a summer schedule of affordable family entertainment including Til Death Do Us Part: Late Nite Catechism 3 and My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy. Tickets are available by calling 203-787-4282 or visiting www.longwharf.org.
