Tap-dancing storm troopers!


Long ago and far away in Modesto, Calif., two young musical theater fans shared a vision: “Star Wars” with tap-dancing Storm Troopers! Ewoks with chirpy voices raised in song!

The two fans, MIT Theater Guild (MTG) members Rogue Shindler and Jeff Suess, wrote and wrote, grafting snappy Star Wars lyrics onto tunes from such Broadway hits as “Cats,” “West Side Story,” “Les Miserables” and “Phantom of the Opera.”

The delirious result is “Star Wars Trilogy: Musical Edition,” the MTG production opening Friday, Nov. 11, with shows Nov. 11-13 and 16-20 in La Sala de Puerto Rico, MIT Student Center.

Greatest. Idea. Ever.

Shame I'm not in Boston to check it out.
