Why See Ian McKellen On Stage?
The legend on stage
From Gandalf to King Lear Ian McKellen's long and illustrious career have left many theatre and film fans a gasp at his talent. After spending his 80th year taking this incredible one-man show on an extensive countrywide tour, he now brings it back to London for an extended run at the Harold Pinter Theatre directed by Sean Mathias. Utterly unique, fascinating and funny, don't miss your chance to see the star chatting about his career (including some choice recreations), Shakespeare, his childhood and more in this absolute once in a lifetime experience!
"Taking this new Show to 80+ theatres around the country has been a joyful birthday present to myself. Soon I will be back in London, for a limited season in the West End, raising much-needed funds for theatre charities. As for the show? Ask someone who's seen it. Come and find out."
- Sir Ian McKellen
The Tony, Golden Globe and six-time Olivier winner made his professional debut in 1961 at the Belgrade Theatre in a production of A Man Of All Seasons, making his first West End appearance in 1965's A Scent of Flowers. From then McKellen was a regular on the British stage, with standout performances at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Royal Shakespeare Company cementing him as one of the country's most acclaimed actors before a certain wizard's hat and staff catapulted him to international stardom - and he's never looked back.
