Ian McKellen On Stage

Ian McKellen On Stage

Harold Pinter Theatre · 20 SEP - 05 JAN

with Tolkien, Shakespeare, others and YOU

“Tickets for this are going to disappear fast, so if you want to see this one in a lifetime show then don't put off booking!”


“Taking this new show to 80+ theatres around the country, has been a joyful birthday present to myself.

I’ve played mainly in theatres I knew well as a young theatregoer and actor. On my birthday, I was in Bolton Town Hall where my dad used to work. It began last February with 15 theatres in Greater London and will end in Orkney. 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.”

- Ian McKellen

The show starts with Gandalf and will likely end with an invitation to act with him on stage. In between, there will be chat, reminiscence and gossip. There will also be performances from his vast repertoire of Shakespeare and Tolkien and perhaps a song or two along with a chance to ask questions and maybe even take to the stage with Henry V.
