In the absurdly enjoyable revivals of Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land" and Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart make a most persuasive case for conversation as both the liveliest and loneliest of arts.

Sir Ian McKellen Addresses Need for Equality in Russia

According to Andrew Potts from, longtime friends Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Harry Kroto have published a letter to Russia's Vladimir Putin this week. The content discusses Russia's stance on homosexuality from all facets of life and how gay Russian citizens should be treated the same as the rest of the population. The piece has been signed by many Nobel prize winners and can be found in The Independent (a newspaper in the United Kingdom).

Sir Ian McKellen's acting credits include a variety of incredible performancea from starring roles with GB's Royal Shakespeare Company to Gandalf in THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE HOBBIT trilogies. He is now making his return to Broadway as Spooner in NO MAN'S LAND & Estragon in Waiting for Godot.

NO MAN'S LAND, by Harold Pinter, is a comedy about two men who meet in a London pub. All appears well as these eldely characters talk through the night. But things take a turn when two young men enter the picture.

Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot focuses on two travelers both yearning to have their lives changed by Mr. Godot. It is while the two sit waiting for Mr. Godot that an unexpected story unfolds.
