Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen star in Harold Pinter's comedy.
Comments from published critics
‘‘These accomplished vets—two Brits, two legends, two knights—make a fine pair of performers, and it’s a joy to watch them work together, polished, sure, and at ease in their roles, playing off each other and clearly enjoying themselves. ’’
‘‘In this production, Stewart and McKellen play the roles they seem born to play. Stewart uses his noble profile and plummy voice to lend gravitas to Hirst, who springs to life in the second act to engage McKellen’s puckishly charming Spooner in a duel of wits.’’
‘‘Being stuck in limbo has never been so magnetic.’’
‘‘In the absurdly enjoyable revivals of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ and Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot,’ which opened in repertory on Sunday at the Cort Theatre, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart make a most persuasive case for conversation as both the liveliest and loneliest of arts.’’
