“Taking this new Show to 80+ theatres around the country, has been a joyful birthday present to myself.  I’ve played mainly in theatres I knew well as a young theatregoer and actor. On my birthday, I was in Bolton Town Hall where my dad used to work. It began last February with 15 theatres in Greater London and will end in Orkney. 

Soon I will be back in London, for a limited season in the West End, raising much-needed funds for theatre charities. 

As for the show? Ask someone who’s seen it. Come and find out.”

The theatre event of the year” The Telegraph.

Warmth, wit and wizardry. In a line of 20th century legends including Gielgud and Olivier. Come one, come all and marvel’ The Telegraph

We loved Ian McKellen on stage. What a fantastic performance from a man who has an amazing stage presence, an inspiring life story, wonderful voice and an amazing memory for Shakespeare!

An excellent and enthralling evening. It’s fascinating to hear all the stories from Sir Ian’s time in the theatre and see excerpts from his most famous roles.

Sir Ian is just incredible, as a person and as an Actor. Stories of his life adventures both personally and on-screen were funny, sad, thoughtful, delightful and overwhelmingly heartfelt. He came out to meet his audience in the interval and personally collected extra monies for the well deserved charity at the end of the performance. Wonderful evening.
