The Wait is finally over: No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, and Waiting For Godot, by Samuel Beckett, both open November 24 at Broadway’s Cort Theatre. Starring stage-and-screen buddies Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, the repertory productions are directed by Sean Mathias.
In addition to Stewart and McKellen, 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.
No Man’s Land 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. Waiting For Godot centers on two wanderers who wait by a tree for the arrival of Godot, whom they hope will change their lives for the better.
