The Glass Half Full team are counting down the days to Press Night for King Lear! But before the big night, take a sneak peek with these production photos.
Previews have been fantastically well-received, and the Twitter feeds are all abuzz with wonderful praise for our creative team, cast, and, of course, Sir Ian McKellen himself.
Sir Ian McKellen is beyond description. To witness his stage craft from that close is something I couldn’t forget even if I wanted to. Getting to see him was more than I ever imagined, my mind is well and truly blown thanks to @kinglearwestend #theatreatitsbest

So glad I got to see @IanMcKellen as King Lear last night, what a portrayal! The man is a genius. The rest of the cast were very brilliant too, especially Sinéad Cusack as Kent. @kinglearwestend #shakespeare
