About Ian McKellen On Stage: With Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and YOU

To celebrate his 80th Birthday, Sir Ian McKellen is bringing his one-man show, Shakespeare, Tolkien, Others and You to the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre following on an extensive tour of London and the UK visiting venues far and wide that have had a part to play in the actor's legendary career. 

Taking to the stage with stories and anecdotes from his illustrious career both on stage and screen, McKellen performs reprises extracts from his most-renowned performances, which include Shakespeare's Lear and Tolkien's Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, while engaging with audience members to help craft the show. 

Ian McKellen on Stage will be at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 20th September 2019 to 5th January 2020. Tickets are now on sale.

Beginning his tour at his local arts venue The Space, McKellen will be taking the show across London to theatres including the Young Vic, Old Vic, Royal Court, Donmar Warehouse, Questor's Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East. He will also be performing at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, where he has appeared many times throughout his career, and The Albert Halls in his hometown of Bolton. It culminates with a gala performance in the Olivier at the National Theatre on 15th September 2019. 

Ian McKellen's career began in the 1960s when he made his professional debut at the Belgrade Theatre in Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons. His career went from strength to strength as he joined Laurence Olivier's National Theatre company at the Old Vic, with regular performances with the RSC and West End. Recent West End appearances include King Lear at the Duke of York's Theatre, Waiting for Godot at the Haymarket and No Man's Land at Wyndham's, both opposite long-time collaborator and friend Patrick Stewart.
