In light of the mania surrounding the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII and Disney’s announced Star Wars-themed lands, not to mention the inescapable fact that Fanboys Have Taken Over The World, this show in which one actor performs the entire original trilogy by himself in just 75 minutes ought to be a popular draw.

Canadian actor Charlie Ross has toured his One Man Star Wars Trilogy from fringe festival to fringe festival since its debut in 2001, racking up more rave reviews than Tosche Station has power converters. Fellow fringe-fest stalwart T.J. Dawe (multiple award-winner and longtime fan favorite at the Orlando Fringe) directs this six-night run of Ross’ “side-splitting romp through a galaxy far, far away.” This is the show you’re looking for.

opens 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 | various times through Sunday, Oct. 18 | Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | | $35-$55
