make it so

Or, if you prefer, Magneto and Professor X do Beckett.

According to a story on the BBC website, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be doing WAITING FOR GODOT next year.

McKellan will play Estragon and Stewart will play Vladimir.

Stewart is currently playing Claudius in the RSC production of Hamlet starring soon-to-be-ex Doctor # 10, David Tennant.

No word if Hugh Jackman might play Pozzo or Lucky.

  1. I’m waiting for the sequel, “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Waiting for Godot”. All four meet at the crossroads, and spend the next two hours misunderstanding each other.

  2. Shouldn’t the headline read: Waiting For Frodo ?
    Compare Dorothy’s journey in Baum’s “The Wizard Of Oz” with Frodo’s quest in Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

  3. With Christopher Lee as Pozzo and Ewan McGregor as Lucky—

    Gandalf/Magneto AND Picard/Prof. X AND Saruman/Dooku/Dracula/that Wicker Man guy AND Obi-Wan Jr?? NERDGASM.

    And, it’ll teach us nerd/geeks some Kulture. ;)

  4. “And, it’ll teach us nerd/geeks some Kulture.”

    I’m convinced that Patrick Stewart did that TV version of Moby Dick in order to show Trekkies where all of Montalban’s scenery-chewing lines in Wrath of Khan came from.

  5. I can’t wait to see all the new comics & storylines that’ll come to us based on Beckett’s work.

    I can’t go on. I must go on.
