The actors are currently rehearsing for their Broadway performances of Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land" and Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot," in which Stewart will play writer Hirst and Vladimir, respectively, and McKellen will play Spooner and Estragon. The shows will debut at Broadway's Cort Theatre on Nov. 24. Tickets go on sale today.
