All of a sudden, Klingon high culture is in...

An opera in the tongue, created for the Star Trek movies by linguist Mark Okrand, opens Thursday in The Hague. Stateside, a performance of scenes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet & Much Ado About Nothing in Klingon is slated for September 25 by the Washington Shakespeare Company in Arlington, Virginia, under the direction of the gifted Christopher Henley. I really wish I could see this show—Chris & I appeared in a couple of plays together during my years in D.C., including the U.S. premiere of Vaclav Havel’s Mistake at Scena Theatre. Plus, I wrote this for Detroit Metro Times about the Klingon Much Ado.
