It had to happen at some point. The first play to ever be produced in the language of the Klingons, A Klingon Christmas Carol began its performances in Chicago recently, including Bat'leth fights. Supertitles in English were provided (for the few viewers who were not fluent in tlhIngan). You haven' t seen Dickens until you have seen it in Klingon. (More pictures here. Get your tickets here)
Klingon (tlhIngan) is the most popular fictional language in the world (according to the Guinness Book of World Records). Besides Dickens' Christmas Carol, there exist Klingon translations of the works of William Shakespeare and parts of the Bible.
