The tip­pling point: No Man’s Land

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Sirs Ian McKellen and Pa­trick Ste­wart have per­formed to­gether on stage and screen, and their friend­ship has be­come in­ter­net-fa­mous, with the web­site Buz­zFeed dub­bing it “the best friend­ship in the world” based on a series of pictures Ste­wart tweeted of them sight­see­ing to­gether around New York City in 2013. The pair were in re­hearsals for Harold Pin­ter’s No Man’s Land on Broad­way at the time, which they sub­se­quently re­vived at Lon­don’s Wyn­d­ham’s Theatre. That pro­duc­tion is broad­cast as part of the Na­tional Theater Live series at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Francisco St.) on Wed­nes­day, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. The men play a pair of ag­ing writ­ers, Hirst and Spooner, who spend a long drunken evening mess­ing with each other’s minds. The broad­cast in­cludes a ques­tion-and-an­swer ses­sion with the cast and di­rec­tor Sean Mathias. Tick­ets, $22, are avail­able at www.tick­ or by call­ing 505-988-1234. — Jen­nifer Levin
