C3: 'Star Wars: The Musical Edition' Review

Posted By Britany on April 25, 2005

Tony writes:

After seeing the reviews of the 'Star Wars in 30 Minutes' and the 'One Man Star Wars Trilogy' (which were both brilliantly hilarious!), I was dismayed not to see a review of 'Star Wars: The Musical Edition'. So, I've decided to correct that oversight.

This immensely funny production begins with a very reasonable facimile of The Flanneled One telling us of the origins of the show and how they would endeavor to bring us the most entertaining specticle that copyright laws protecting parody would allow. And then we were off! The lights went down, and when they came up, The Flanneled One was standing center stage holding a cue card that read, Star Wars... He proceded to drop them one at a time, each one with a line from the opening crawl. About halfway through came a card that read, "blah, blah, blah" followed up with, "You already know all of this". And so we began...

Highlights fo the show included Obi wan comparing the Force to a soundtrack, and launches into, "The Music of the Knight". One of my favorite scenes was when Luke and Obi encountered Ponda Boba and Dr. E in the Cantina. Only they substituted Jar Jar for Ponda. As Kenobi steps in to save Luke, Jar Jar shouts, "OBI!!", only to get his arm cut off. Then as he lies moaning on the ground and trying to get up, Obi thrusts his saber between the Gungan's ears for good measure, much to the delight of the crowd.

No musical was safe either. From "The Phantom of the Opera" to "HMS Pinafore" to "Madame Butterfly", this brilliant troop skewered some of the best musical theater numbers known. "Tonight" from "West Side Story" was used to punctuate the climactic space battle, with the Rebels and Imperials alternating lyrics. My personal favorite song and dance number was the trio of stormtroopers doing a kick line and singing "There Ain't Nothinn Like a Name" ( a parody of "There Ain't Nothing Like a Dame" from "South Pacific").

I wish I could give you more specifics, but I am trying to keep from mixing up the musical with the 30 minutes show. Both were wonderful! If they hold a Celebration 4 for the 30th aniversary (fingers crossed), make sure you take time out of waiting in line for your exclusive figures (10.5 hours for me on Thursday) to catch BOTH of these brilliant shows.

He also adds news for fans of the 'One Man Star Wars Trilogy':

On a related note, the gentleman who did the One Man Show said that he is working on the prequels and hopes to have a 2 hour Saga Edition together within the year!
