howwastheshow.com goes to the Guthrie

One hates to brag too much, but when it's your own son and he turns out "The Best Damn Music Site" in Minneapolis, why not! His website is venturing out occasionally into the coverage of theatre as well as music and his item on Sir Ian McKellen's sold out interview appearance at the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre covers one of those "God I wish I had been there." moments. Paste this into your browser and take a peek.

If you haven't already got your tickets to McKellen's star turns in King Lear and The Seagull, you are out of luck, but you can get a pretty good idea of the man and his career by finding a copy of the Aug. 27, 2007 New Yorker. It has a thorough and throughougly delightful profile of the British actor who has truly inherited the mantle of Olivier and Gielgud. The article is written by the well know critic, John Lahr. Unfortunately, it is not available on line (other than as a short abstract).
