I just saw this it's just fantastic - a crime that it is not published. McKellen performs a wide range of characters (old, young, male, female) amazingly. He does a ten minute medley from Romeo and Juliet playing both parts, a scene between Hamlet, Polonious and the Player King, and a speech from the soon to be Richard the Third from Henry VI part III that makes your jaw drop.
This is nothing less than amazing
