ian-mckellen-patrick-stewart-waiting-for-godot-photo-by-sasha-gusov-lst034585-594x309Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart may be best known by younger generations for sharing the screen in X-MEN, but get ready to witness the pair together where they really belong: on stage!

USA Today is reporting that McKellen and Stewart will come together on Broadway this Fall in a limited-season repertoire of two 20th-century classics: Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land” and Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”.

The classically trained actors voiced their excitement in a recent statement:

McKellen: “British actors are used to playing in repertory…We enjoy the challenge of variety, and audiences, myself included, enjoy watching a group of actors in contrasting roles. We hope, at least once a week, to give Broadway audiences the chance of seeing Beckett and Pinter on adjacent nights, perhaps even on the same day.”

Stewart: “All my acting life, I have been drawn to the principles and practice of a ‘company,’ and working with familiar, trusted friends and colleagues…It’s not that strangeness/newness isn’t exciting — it is — but when there is a common language and experience, then the unpredictable can happen.”

To finally see these two legends of screen and stage play off of each other live is definitely not something to be missed…
