Shatner Reads Exodus

William Shatner's reading of Exodus: An Oratorio in Three Parts will be released as an audio CD this week by the Jewish Music Group.

As reported by the Jewish News Weekly, the performance of Exodus, read by Shatner and accompanied by the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in 2005, will be available for the first time on audio CD.

Shatner though highly of the production, making arrangements to have the two performances recorded. "On the Saturday night that most of this record is taken from, my thrill was connecting with the audience the way we did," he said.

In addition to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, which had a membership of seventy-five people, a choral group of three hundred and fifty accompanied the reading.

Shatner also has another project in the works that touches his Jewish roots, The Shiva Club. "'The Shiva Club,' which is a movie I am attempting to make sometime soon, is about crashing a shiva, if you will," said Shatner. "A couple of comics crash a shiva. I could have, I suppose, made it an Irish wake, but the shiva I was more familiar with.”

I'd sit shiva with The Shat any time he says. Any dead friend of The Shat's is a dead friend of mine.
