Directed by Sean Mathias, the productions will begin previews Oct. 26 at Broadway's Cort Theatre with an official opening Nov. 24. This limited season will run 14 weeks only. (Prior to Broadway, No Man's Land will play a brief engagement at Berkeley Rep Aug. 3-31 with McKellen, Stewart, Crudup and Hensley directed by Mathias.)
Waiting for Godot played a critically acclaimed, sold-out run in London’s West End in 2009 with McKellen and Stewart.
The productions will feature sets and costumes by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting by Peter Kaczorowski, sound by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen, projections by Zachary Borovay and hair by Tom Watson.
In Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, according to press notes, "we wonder if two writers, Hirst (Patrick Stewart) and Spooner (Ian McKellen) really know each other, or are they performing an elaborate charade? The ambiguity - and the comedy - intensify with the arrival of two other men, Briggs (Shuler Hensley) and Foster (Billy Crudup). Do all four inhabit a no-man's-land between the present and time remembered, between reality and fantasy?"
Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot "follows two consecutive days in the lives of Vladimir (Patrick Stewart) and Estragon (Ian McKellen), who divert themselves by clowning around, joking and arguing, while waiting expectantly and unsuccessfully for the mysterious Godot. While they are waiting, two strangers appear: Pozzo (Shuler Hensley) and Lucky (Billy Crudup)."
No Man’s Land and Waiting for Godot will be produced on Broadway by Stuart Thompson and NOMANGO Productions. NOMANGO Productions is a consortium of Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Sean Mathias and a group of investors.
