Magic Smoking Monkey attacks George Lucas' magnum opus (original flavor) like a hungry Wampa on a Tauntaun, condensing almost seven hours of child abandonment, incestuous feelings, dirty smugglers, sexually ambiguous droids and syntax-challenged hand puppets into 60 minutes of comedic bliss. Thrill to the Millennium Falcon escaping the asteroid field! Lose your frickin' mind to all the wicked lightsaber battles! Squirm uneasily as Luke sticks his tongue down Leia's throat! The One-Hour Star Wars Trilogy: LIVE! is performed at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (April 23 through May 8) at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; 314-361-5664 or www.stlshakespeare.org), and tickets are $10 to $15. Many Bothans died to bring you this information.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 & 10:30 p.m. Starts: April 23. Continues through May 8, 2010
