This is no Jedi mind trick. While “Star Wars in Concert” is no Comic-Con, we can’t think of a better off-season reason to dust off your Boba Fett mask and enjoy yet another incarantion of George Lucas’ enduring space opera. In this case, the proton torpedoes are targeting this multi-media event that features the scores from all six of the Star Wars flicks thanks to a full symphony orchestra and choir. And it’s all accompanied by footage from the immortal films displayed on a three-story-tall hi-def LED screen—call it the Death Star of television monitors. Plus for all the diehards, the concert comes with an exclusive exhibit of costumes (sorry, Princess Leia’s Jabba the Hutt slave girl “metal bikini” not included), props and artwork from the movies, including blasters and helmets used for the Tatooine and Coruscant scenes. OK, want to up the ante? British actor Anthony Daniels (do I really need to tell you he played C-3PO?) will be providing live narration. This event features two showings at the Citizen Business Bank Arena so our advice to potential concert-goers is to make sure the family landspeeder is in working order and capable of making the hyperspace trek out to Ontario. I’ve got a good feeling about this.
“Star Wars in Concert” at Citizens Business Bank Arena, 4000 Ontario Center Pkwy., Ontario, (909) 244-5500; www.cbbankarena.com, www.starwarsinconcert.com. Sun, May 30. 3PM, 7PM shows. Tickets $39-$79.
