Rob sent me this link to a new Star Wars stage production I seriously want to see this summer. How fun is this? Here’s a clip from the AP:

U.S. director George Lucas has given permission for the “Star Wars” saga, which lasted for over 13 hours, to be shortened to a production of just 20 minutes, officials from Britain’s Reduced Shakespeare Company said Tuesday.

The company is famous for staging the Bard’s 37 plays in just 97 minutes and has also staged “The complete history of America” and “The Bible: the complete word of od,” among other abbreviated productions.

“This is my boyhood dream, in the space of 20 minutes I’m going to be Jabba the Hutt, Jar Jar Binks, Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker,” said the company’s Adam Long, who will write and direct the piece and star in it, with two other performers. “Everyone loves ‘Star Wars’ but I love it more than anyone on the planet.”
