Ian McKellen on Stage
The Hobbit star Ian McKellen is downing his staff and pointy blue hat at weekends to perform a special one-man show in 11 New Zealand centres to raise funds to restore Christchurch’s earthquake-damaged Isaac Theatre Royal.
Ian McKellen on Stage is a new show, devised in part by the audience. In this unique fundraiser, you can ask any question at all about Sir Ian's work and life, as he retraces his journey from the north of England to the West End of London, to Broadway, Hollywood and to Middle Earth.
All income (no hidden costs) will go directly to repair Christchurch’s Isaac Theatre Royal – which was badly damaged in the series of 2011 earthquakes.
Sir Ian said, “the last time I was on stage in New Zealand was at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Waiting for Godot. I love this beautiful old theatre and want to help restore it as soon as possible. Dates:
