A sci-fi and fantasy theater company that’s been closed most of the pandemic is ramping up its in-person events again and will stage a “Star Trek”-themed show this weekend.
Otherworld Theatre Company, 3914 N. Clark St., will host actor Doug Jones, who plays Captain Saru in “Star Trek Discovery,” 7 p.m. Sunday. Jones will be a guest for a “Star Trek” improv show and a live taping of the company’s upcoming podcast, “The Nerd Therapy Podcast,” which launches April 22. The episode featuring Jones is scheduled to air in June.
“We’re super excited to have Doug Jones here, and he’s super jazzed, too, because he really appreciates our mission as a nonprofit,” said Tiffany Keane Schaefer, Otherworld’s founder and artistic director. “He’s coming out to support us in our reopening.”
