Photo Flash: Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen Tweet NYC Photos; Announce Benefit Auction
Actors Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen have been having a ball discovering all the sights and sounds of The Big Apple. The acclaimed duo have been sharing their adventures on Twitter over The Past few months to promote their stage plays: Harold Pinter's comedy No Man's Land and Samuel Beckett's classic Waiting For Godot at the Cort Theatre on Broadway.
In order to bid farewell to NYC in style, the actors have set up an eBay auction for three souvenir t-shirts from their recent trip to Coney Island. Below are the actual shirts featuring the photo for which they posed. Each of them is signed by both Sirs and there is one small, medium and large.
All proceeds will benefit City Harvest, the amazing food rescue organization now serving New York City for more than 30 years. This year, City Harvest will collect 46 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to more than 500 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the nearly two million New Yorkers facing hunger each year.
It's Gogo and Didi's "Thank You" to the city that hosted them for this extraordinary run on Broadway.

$30 rush tickets are available throughout the run for both NO MAN'S LAND and WAITING FOR GODOT. The front row of the orchestra and other locations are available exclusively to rush ticket buyers. Tickets are available for purchase beginning at 10am daily (and 12pm on Sundays) for $30.00 (including facility fee), two tickets maximum per person, on The Day of the performance, subject to availability. Tickets must be purchased in person at the Cort Theatre box office.
In NO MAN'S LAND, two elderly writers, having met in a London pub, continue drinking and talking into the night. All might be well, until the return home of two younger men. Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity, in one of Pinter's most entertaining plays.
