Comedy Bar’s Festival of New Formats continues tonight with a show that promises to do what George Lucas never could, add value to my favourite movie of all time. The Empire Strikes Back Deleted Scenes casts Toronto’s “best improvisers” as characters from Irvin Kershner’s 1980 masterpiece “Star Wars 2” and expands the beloved Star Wars universe in a way that doesn’t involve ruining it. To be fair, the Cloud City exteriors looked really good in Special Edition.
