Directed by Sean Mathias this unique performance of Ian McKellen On Stage will be in benefit of the nonprofit organization, Only Make Believe, which creates interactive theater for critically ill and disabled children.
The Tony, Golden Globe and six-time Olivier winner made his professional debut in 1961 at the Belgrade Theatre in a production of A Man Of All Seasons, making his first West End appearance in 1965's A Scent of Flowers. From then McKellen was a regular on the British stage, with standout performances at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Royal Shakespeare Company cementing him as one of the country's most acclaimed actors before a certain wizard's hat and staff catapulted him to international stardom - and he's never looked back.
