[TO BOLDLY CROON] As true believers gather to cheer on yet another vintage-tinted vanity tour showcasing the hobbyist passions of a screen icon lately skimming the Great American Songbook, any critical assessment of the sort typically applied to professional musicians feels unfair. It\'s certain to be instantly subsumed by towering waves of uncomplicated adoration such as that which the Schnitzer crowds showered upon Molly Ringwald\'s 2013 torch songs and Hugh Laurie\'s 2012 blues stylings. Some celebrities accumulate emotional investments of such magnitude that their very presence overwhelms all else. While Brent Spiner never approached anything beyond a niche cultural resonance during the early \'90s height of Star Trek\'s second iteration, his portrayal of twinkly android Data justified emotional unavailability for a proudly solipsistic generation. This evening\'s awkward blend of Q&A with musical theater seems rather desperately targeted to the nerd faithful, and however limited Spiner\'s vocals and inane his ambitions may appear over a scant discography, they\'ll likely never more enjoy the cabaret.
