About the Show/Event

Ian McKellen - Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and You
Information for Ian McKellen - Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and You at Theatre Royal, Newcastle upon Tyne (One person show). Ian McKellen is to celebrate his 8oth birthday by raising funds for theatres, with a new solo show which will play on 80 stages across the UK. The intimate show is a mixture of anecdote and acting, including Tolkien, Shakespeare, others...and you the audience. Ian McKellen says: "I'm celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don't. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I've always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Prospect Theatre, the Actors' Company, as well as with commercial productions. Sean Mathias, the director and I have worked together for stage and screen, many happy times."
