Ian McKellen On StageMost people think about putting their feet up at the age of 80 but Ian McKellen, star of stage and legend on screen celebrates his 80th birthday with an 80-date, 8-month country wide tour. In London, alone, he's appearing on 20 dates at theatres and arts centres across the city and, what's more, all the profits will be donated to each theatre's charitable projects or restoration funds. His impromptu solo show last year - now the stuff of legend - treated theatre goers to "a bit of Gandalf and a couple of Shakespeare speeches" when injury prevented him from performing King Lear. For this special 80th birthday tour you can expect more of the same as well as convivial conversation, anecdotes and a reflection on his life. It opens at his local arts centre, The Space, in January and ends in Orkney in August. London venues include the National Theatre, Young Vic, Bridge Theatre, Richmond Theatre, Above the Stag, Hampstead Theatre, Arts Theatre, Old Vic, Royal Court, The Queens Theatre, RADA (for students only), Donmar Warehouse, Questors Ealing, Lyric Hammersmith, Duke of York's Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East before one last blast at the National Theatre.

 

About The Young Vic

Knocked together out of breeze blocks for a minimal budget in 1970, Lawrence Olivier's experimental theatre was intended to last for five years, and provide an inspiration for the new generation of performers. But this was an experiment that worked and, years later, the Young Vic remains south London's premier venue for the contemporary, the shocking, the controversial, and the bizarre.
