Ian McKellen told Encore Radio:
“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.”
The acclaimed tour has thus far raised over £1million for causes related to the venues it has visited and will pass £2million when it ends in Orkney in August. The total target for money raised by the end of the tour and West End run is £3million.
“Soon I will be back in London, for a limited season in the West End, raising much-needed funds for theatre charities. For each performance at the Harold Pinter Theatre, I’m glad that there will be 80 tickets at just £10. As for the Show? Ask someone who’s seen it. Come and find out.”
Tickets for the new West End run will go on sale at 10am on Friday 14 June 2019 via www.ianonstage.co.uk
This includes 80 tickets per performance for just £10. Audiences are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
