Overall Experience 
Most of you probably know Ian McKellen for his iconic role in Lord of the Rings as Gandalf. He is a great actor but the true potential of his acting was obstructed by the movie screen. I got the opportunity to see him play the role of King Lear on stage.

A fallen king may not be very familiar to us but what is relatable is a man who suffers. That was what Ian McKellen pulled off with his role as King Lear. Throughout the play, I was kept on the edge of my seat, hoping that he will prevail against his sad fate. I can’t reveal what happened in the end but I was distraught after the play.
