October 13 – 18 the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater goes to a galaxy far, far away with One Man STAR WARS® Trilogy – written and performed by Charles Ross. Since first performing his One Man Star Wars Trilogy in Toronto, Ontario in January of 2001, Ross has brought countless audiences, both large and small, to their feet with his surprisingly unique shows. Much of Ross’ childhood was spent watching Star Wars videos over - and over - and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious One-Man Star Wars® Trilogy, where he single-handedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes.

One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion. Their 1973 debut album, Abandoned Luncheonette, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone.” From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles including “Rich Girl,” “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums. Over forty years beyond their first album, Daryl Hall and John Oates are very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.
