Off-Broadway News Star Trek Parody Khan!!! The Musical! Will Warp Drive to Off-Broadway

The "Parody Trek-Tacular" pays homage to 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

The human adventure is just beginning, and Khan!!! The Musical! is coming!

The musical, which is an irreverent parody of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek: The Next Generation, will boldy venture Off-Broadway beginning May 4, beaming into the Players Theatre.

Set in 2366 and the timeframe of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Khan is a camp heavy exploration of Data the Android's attempt at adapting the 'history' of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan into a musical. Resulting in a comedic mixture of William Shatner impressions, mutant space chickens, and Vulcan tap dancing, the coming-of-middle-age story remains (mostly) true to the original film, with the sci-fi silliness turned up to 11.

Khan!!! The Musical! is co-written, composed, and features lyrics by Brent Black, with additional material by co-conceiver Alina Morgan. John Lampe will direct.

“A lot of episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation feature storylines where Data has to learn something through trial and error, usually going a little too far or taking things a bit too literally; the idea that he would write a musical after studying classic Broadway shows of the past opened the concept of the show even wider to include sendups of classic musicals... Star Trek has always been ahead of the curve in terms of inclusivity and representation, and it’s nice that this campy comedy show still maintains the spirit of that future Gene Roddenberry envisioned when he created the original TV show," says Black in a statement

Additional creative team and casting information will be released at a later date.
