THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING

PATRICK STEWART (Adult Merlin) is one of the most acclaimed performers working today, with numerous and varied roles on both the stage and screens big and small. For his work, he has been awarded multiple Golden Globe, SAG, Emmy, and Tony nominations.

A three-time Olivier Award winner, Stewart recently reunited with Sir Ian McKellen in Harold Pinter's 'No Man's Land,' which they previously performed at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in California and on Broadway in Fall 2013. This was part of their 'Two Plays in Rep,' which also included a reprisal of their production of Samuel Beckett's 'Waiting for Godot,' which they performed to critical acclaim on London's West End in 2009.
