Producers announced Tuesday that the 80-year-old Shatner will take a one-man-show, titled "Shatner's World: We All Just Live in It," on the road with a national tour starting on the Great White Way in February.

Best known for playing Captain Kirk in the long-running TV sci-fi show "Star Trek," Shatner will spend two hours telling audiences about his life and career "from Shakespearean stage actor to internationally known icon and raconteur," according to a statement from producers.

Shatner has starred in such TV series as "Boston Legal" and "$#*! My Dad Says," and last appeared on Broadway in "A Shot in the Dark" in 1961.
