Add to it the fact that Star Wars’ Storm Troopers were waiting, past all the shimmering lights, reflective mirrors and shiny glass, at the top of the stairs, to deliver an Imperial welcome and embarking on Tuesday night’s opening performance of Charles Ross’ One Man Star Wars Trilogy, was full of “blast off and blast ‘em” energy, even before entering the Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater.
I am not a maniac Star Wars fan, as my friend Christian, who accompanied me to the show, is. I don’t know every line, every character, every action sequence piece by piece from the first 3 films, or the next three for that matter. However, my guess is Charles Ross — writer, actor, lone star of the one-man production — is exactly that type of Star Wars fan. Although it would also seem, Charlie didn’t craft his (Han) solo show solely for his breed of starfleet followers.
Fans who know all the subtle nuances of the original 3 Star Wars movies — Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of The Jedi — may be able to pick apart the 90 minute performance character by (swiftly and concisely delivered) character, starship by (swiftly maneuvering [via his one man stage] conquering body movements) starship battle
. Those Star Wars diehards may have noticed characters left out or under represented, omitted battles and questionable choices in physical or vocal cast portrayal. They may may nitpick the performance but then that’s what a super fan would do, even if they loved every minute of it.
Less versed and immersed Star Wars fans, such as me, are still able to enjoy the fast paced exploration of a majority of the 3 original George Lucas films without finding themselves lost in a live theater asteroid belt. Fans like me can sit back and enjoy Charlies Ross’ gift with sound effects and impressions, his physical prowess which allowed him to instantly transform from Yoda to Luke to Ben and back to Yoda again in a matter of seconds and his comedic sensibly to provokingly poke fun at the films he so clearly loves. Fans like me can simply just enjoy a 90 minute performance on an empty stage by one man, who gives us so much to enjoy.
I may not be a maniac Star Wars fan. However, I did find myself feeling a bit sorry for the one audience member who admitted, during a brief audience talkback session, she had never seen any of the Star Wars films. She must’ve felt like an audience member combing the desert planet of Tatooine for a plot clue through most of the performance.
I’d like to think the action packed and deftly acted One Man Star Wars Trilogy acted as the power of the force to hold her attention as well as it did mine.
One Man Star Wars Trilogy, written and performed by Charles Ross runs from October 13 through October 18, in the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater at Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
