Ian McKellen will bring his show Ian McKellen On Stage: With Tolkein, Shakespeare, Others And You to London’s Harold Pinter Theatre from 20 September 2019 to 5 January 2020, directed by Sean Mathias.

All profits from the shows will benefit theatre charities. The season follows an unprecedented, sold-out tour of more than 80 venues the length and breadth of the UK in celebration of McKellen’s 80th birthday year.

The acclaimed tour has thus far raised over £1 million for causes related to the venues it has visited and will pass £2 million when it ends in Orkney in August. The total target for money raised by the end of the tour and West End run is £3 million.

Ian McKellen said:

“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.

“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.”
