Comments and Reviews
"In Ian McKellen, Peter Shaffer has been gifted with an actor who can, and does, seize the chance in both hands. As played by Mr McKellen he reveals it with such virtuoso contol of pace, accent and style that the round of applause he gets at his exit seems only right and proper, as a tribute to the magic moment when drama becomes theatre."
