Jean Luc Picard and me
Last night I went to see Ellen Waddell's fabulous one woman show Jean-Luc Picard and me. It was funny, and sad, and enlightening, it featured the Seattle Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Neil Gaiman, Los Campesinos and, of course, a lot of Jean-Luc Picard.
Ellen talks honestly, and often hilariously, about her relationship to her father and the show and how one is affected by the other. It's also a very personal story of growing up a nerd, playing in a band, travelling the world and love's lost. All using an entertaining powerpoint show.
Highly recommended, if you get the chance, go and see it.
There's an interview with Ellen here
Details of the show are here
