Hot Sheet: Waiting for Spartacus

The top 10 entertainment and events highlights on our gaydar this week: From the swords and sandals of Spartacus, to the wigs and spandex of Divine.



10.) THEATER: Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land
Sir Ian McKellen is perhaps the greatest living actor who is openly gay, and definitely one of the greatest of any stripe. He and friend, straight ally, fellow great actor, and X-Men costar Patrick Stewart begin performances on Broadway Saturday in two plays in repertory: Samuel Beckett’s absurdist classic Waiting for Godot and Harold Pinter’s acclaimed No Man’s Land. McKellen and Stewart had a well-received pre-Broadway run in the plays at Berkeley Rep in California this summer, along with costars Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley, who will join them on Broadway as well. Sean Mathias, McKellen’s former partner, directs. Through March 2 at the Cort Theatre; Find more info here. Trudy Ring
