“In this live reading of the unauthorized Star Trek parody, Captain Picard and Data present an uproarious comedy adaptation of the iconic film The Wrath of Khan. Written for Trekkies and Broadway fans alike, Khan!!! is equal parts snarky, slapstick, and heartfelt. Come for the Vulcan tap dancing, stay for the mutant space chickens! 110 minutes plus 10-minute intermission.”
