What exactly were the origins of the notorious 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special? A new stage play in Los Angeles attempts to answer this question in a show called Special. Special runs December 14, 2018 through January 13, 2019 at the Theatre of NOTE in Hollywood,1517 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. And the cast includes The Last Starfighter’s Lance Guest as Harrison Ford, so this is something truly special that is not to be missed.

From the official site: In 1978, movie brats and network execs joined forces to create The Star Wars Holiday Special, a costly, disastrous variety show that aired on CBS exactly once. George Lucas wanted to smash every copy of the special with a hammer, but thanks to bootlegs and the internet it went on to become a cult classic… and Special is the jaw-dropping, true-ish story of how a smash hit space opera became the worst TV show in the galaxy!

Get tickers and more information on the official Special site. And May the Force Bea Arthur…
