Trek Untold-Episode 132: Behind the Scenes of “Khan!!! The Musical”
Behind the Scenes of “Khan!!! The Musical”
Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the new off-Broadway show for Trekkies filled with ear worms – in more ways than one. “Khan!!! The Musical” is a Star Trek parody musical that retells The Wrath of Khan in a unique and hilarious way. On this episode of Trek Untold, we pull back the curtain on this show with a special “spockumentary” featuring exclusive footage and interviews with some of the people behind this show while we observe one of their final rehearsals before hitting the stage.
I'm chatting with Brent Black, AKA Brentalfloss, on YouTube and director John Lampe to understand how this homage to musical theater came together! Then, meet some of the stars, including Shyaporn Theerakulstit, Laura Whittenberger, and Julian Manjerico, to get the scoop from the performers! Plus, a first look at several of the songs in the show that have never been seen before!
Khan will run for a five-week limited engagement at the Players Theatre (115 MacDougal St, New York, NY 10012) starting May 4 and wrapping on June 4.
“Khan!!! The Musical” is co-written, composed, and lyrics by Brent Black (AKA Brentalfloss), co-conceived and additional materials by Alina Morgan, musical direction by Nicholas Kaminski, choreography by Angel Reed, and directed by John Lampe.
The production stars Shyaporn Theerakulstit as Kirk, Zachary Kropp as Khan, Julian Manjerico as Data, Clayton Matthews as Sulu/Chekov, Lindsey M.E. Newton as Bones/Scotty, Max Nusbaum as Spock, Crystal Marie Stewart as Uhura/Carol Marcus, and Laura Whittenberger as Saavik.
