Mary D. Fisher Theatre joins theaters around the world for special one night event
Sedona AZ (June 6, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world to present a one-night only world premiere of “McKellen: Playing the Part” on Tuesday, June 19 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Constructed around a 14-hour interview, “McKellen: Playing the Part” uncovers the remarkable story of actor Sir Ian McKellen. From his upbringing living through the Second World War, working through repertory and West End theatre becoming a pioneering stage star, coming out and being a leader in the campaign for equality, to his mainstream film breakouts as Magneto and Gandalf. His work and influence transcends generations, celebrated here in this fully authorized insight.
“McKellen: Playing the Part” features unprecedented access to private photo albums, a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diaries written when he was 12, and exclusive behind the scenes of theatre shows and films, alongside his personal thoughts on a life long lived.
Four stars! “An intimate, enthralling look at the life of a legend.” — Time Out
