Performances of Harold Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND begin tonight (Thursday, October 31) at 8pm.  Playing in rep with Samuel Beckett’s WAITING FOR GODOT, the two plays star Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley and are directed by Sean Mathias.  This limited engagement repertory season officially opens on Sunday, November 24, 2013 and will play through Sunday, March 2 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street).  For performance schedule and more information, visit TwoPlaysInRep.com.

Rush tickets will be available during the run of the limited repertory season.  The front row of the orchestra and other locations will be available exclusively to rush ticket buyers.  Tickets will be available for purchase beginning at 10am daily (and 12pm on Sundays when the box office is open) for $30.00 (including facility fee), two tickets maximum per person, on the day of the performance, subject to availability.  Tickets must be purchased in person at the Cort Theatre box office.

NO MAN’S LAND played a critically acclaimed run at Berkeley Repertory Theatre this past August. 

Ian McKellen won the Tony Award for his performance in Amadeus in 1981.  Patrick Stewart first appeared on Broadway in Peter Brook’s production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1971 and won the Drama Desk Award for A Christmas Carol in 1992.  McKellen and Stewart have appeared together on stage twice before – in the 2009 West End production of Waiting for Godot and in the 1977 premiere of Tom Stoppard’s Every Good Boy Deserves Favour.  Billy Crudup, won a Tony Award for The Coast of Utopia in 2007.  Shuler Hensley won a Tony Award for Oklahoma! in 2002. Sean Mathias, Tony nominated for his direction of Indiscretions, directed Billy Crudup in The Elephant Man in 2002.

In NO MAN’S LAND, two elderly writers, having met in a London pub, continue drinking and talking into the night. All might be well, until the return home of two younger men. Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity, in one of Pinter's most entertaining plays.

In WAITING FOR GODOT, two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.  

Alternating in the role of ‘The Boy’ in WAITING FOR GODOT are Colin Critchley and Aidan Gemme.

Designs for the productions include sets and costumes by Stephen Brimson Lewis (twice Tony-nominated for Indiscretions), lighting by Peter Kaczorowski (a Tony Award winner for Contact and The Producers) sound and music by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (Breakfast At Tiffany’s), projections by Zachary Borovay (Ann) and hair and make-up by Tom Watson (The Assembled Parties).

The Cort Theatre Box Office hours are:  October 25 - 10am to 8:30pm, from Saturday, October 26 onward - Monday through Saturday 10am to 8:30pm and Sundays from 12:00pm to 6:00pm
