The Star Wars Holiday Special is so notorious that there’s a live-action version onstage this season. For those unfamiliar with the trainwreck: The program, which aired one time only in 1978, follows Chewbacca’s family as they prepare to celebrate Life Day. Will the Empire ruin the family holiday? Will Chewie and Han Solo make it home in time to save the day? Why is Bea Arthur here? While we don’t anticipate any Golden Girls cameos from the Wicked Wenches at Minnsky Theater, we do expect some bombastic musical numbers, sexy wookies, and plenty of holiday camp.
