Tickets are now on sale for not one, but two beloved plays starring stage and screen buddies Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart: Waiting For Godot and No Man’s Land. Waiting For Godot begins performances October 26 at the Cort Theatre, which will be performed on an alternating schedule with No Man's Land. Directed by Sean Mathias, opening night is set for November 24.
In addition to the talented twosome, Waiting For Godot and No Man’s Land stars Tony winners Shuler Hensley and Billy Crudup. Godot features Stewart as Vladimir, McKellen as Estragon, Crudup as Lucky and Hensley as Pozzo. No Man’s Land features Stewart as Hirst, McKellen as Spooner, Crudup as Foster and Hensley as Briggs.
Written by Samuel Beckett, Waiting For Godot tells the story of two wanderers who wait by a lonely tree to meet with Godot, whom they hope will change their lives forever. No Man’s Land, written by Harold Pinter, tells the story of two elderly writers who meet in a London pub and continue drinking throughout the night—until their relationships are exposed by the return of two younger men.
