Magneto and Professor X wait for Godot

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will star as Estragon and Vladimir, respectively, in a new production of Samuel Beckett's 1953 classic Waiting for Godot, which is being staged by Sean Mathias as the first production as artistic director of the 2009 Theatre Royal Haymarket Company. McKellen and Stewart first worked together in the original production of Tom Stoppard's Every Good Boy Deserves Favour for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1977. Godot will tour prior to its arrival, beginning performances at the Haymarket on April 30 for a strictly limited season that is currently booking to June 28.
