Star Trek’s Sulu to host a sci-fi concert series at Roy Thomson Hall
Our inner geek is blissing out over this one: Star Trek’s Lieutenant Sulu is in town and he’s hosting three concerts of sci-fi tunes.
George Takei, who played the helmsman of the Starship Enterprise in the TV series and movies, will take to the stage at Roy Thomson Hall tomorrow (May 1) to host the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s “Sci-Fi Spectacular.”
The TSO will be zipping around the galaxy playing theme tunes from classics like E.T., Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. We’re wondering whether Takei will start humming along when the orchestra strikes up the tune from Star Trek.
The concert will be conducted by Jack Everly and feature the vocal talents of soprano Kristen Plumley.
Roy Thomson Hall, 60 Simcoe St., 416-872-4255. May 1 & 2. $29-$109.
