Ian McKellen is bringing his one-man show, ‘Tolkien, Shakespeare, others and YOU’, to the West End, and tickets are now on sale.
Throughout 2019, the legendary actor has been celebrating his 80th birthday by performing at 80 theatres around the country, sharing stories, anecdotes and performances from an incredible career across stage and screen. It won’t surprise you that tickets to that sold out pretty sharpish back in November. [See also: the new plays and musicals coming to London in 2019]
Now his travels may have come to an end, but the show must go on! From September 20th until January 2020, Sir Ian will be back in London, performing at the Harold Pinter Theatre (off Leicester Square) to delight thousands more lucky fans.
He’ll be raising much-needed funds for theatre charities and hopefully some biscuit money for his good self. (Treat yourself, Ian!) Reviews of the tour thus far describe it as ‘heartfelt hilarity‘ (The Guardian), ‘utterly captivating‘ (The Upcoming) and ‘incredibly engaging‘ (London Theatre) so it’s, like, a pretty good time!
Tickets for this are flying out the door: so grab yours here while the going’s good!
