Ian McKellen's first Los Angeles Stage Appearance since 1998!
An evening of chat, reminiscence, and performance, telling the story of two parallel journeys. Alone onstage, Ian recalls his childhood fascination with the theatre and his experience of acting in London's West End, on Broadway, in Los Angeles, and beyond. He also confides his early awareness of being gay and his momentous decision to finally come out of the closet just before Queen Elizabeth knighted him in 1991 for his services to the performing arts.
All proceeds from these performances benefit Los Angeles Young Actors' Company.
