A Klingon Christmas Carol
« on: December 11, 2009, 10:30:24 PM »
So, I review plays for an award show similar to the Tony's. Minneapolis has more theatre seats per capita than any other city in the US except New York. Anywho...I was assigned to review A Klingon Christmas Carol...and yes, it was in Klingon! Luckily they had supertitles (like subtitles only projected above).

I guess I just have to get that off my chest. Qapla'! (whatever the hell that means!)

Qapla' is a traditonal Klingon salutation, the literal translation being "Success!"

Is the review readable anywhere?

Mine are not, however the website for the show is at http://www.cbtheatre.org/ It was very interesting and I actually found myself laughing. It has the traditional happy ending like the Dickens classic.

It started with a Vulcan who was teaching a course at the Academy on historical literature. The "class" (audience) already discussed the Dickens version and now it was the Klingon version.

The main character was SQuja' (pronounced Scoo-cha) and had elements that I think Trekkies/Trekkers would have really liked.
