British actor and Lord of the Rings star Sir Ian McKellen is proving so popular with Wellington audiences that a third performance of King Lear will be staged next month. Tickets to the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of King Lear at Westpac St James Theatre on August 11 and 12 sold out last month, but tickets were still available for two performances of The Seagull on August 13 and 14, which also stars Sir Ian. The August 13 performance of The Seagull has now been replaced by a third performance of King Lear. People who had bought tickets to The Seagull on August 13 will be given tickets to the August 14 show. [More]
