This fall, PATRICK STEWART returned to the New York stage
starring opposite Sir Ian McKellen in repertoire productions of Harold Pinter's
No Man's Land and Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot, which they first performed
to critical acclaim on London's West End in 2009.
Stewart most recently appeared on stage in Edward Bond's Bingo at the Young
Vic and Chichester Festival Theatre; and as Shylock in a 2011 RSC production of
The Merchant of Venice, directed by Rupert Goold. His previous collaboration
with Goold, in the title role of Macbeth, played Chichester, London, BAM and
then Broadway, where he earned a Tony nomination.
Stewart is an Honorary Associate Artist with the RSC, having appeared in over
60 productions including, most recently, a 2008 production of Hamlet, opposite
David Tennant; and 2005 repertory productions of Antony and Cleopatra and The
Tempest. In 1978, he won an Olivier Award for his performance in Peter Brook's
production of Antony and Cleopatra and was nominated for his role in The
Merchant of Venice. He also appeared in the now legendary Peter Brook production
of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
On Broadway and West End stages, Patrick has appeared in A Life in the
Theatre, The Master Builder, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan and The Tempest. For his
acclaimed solo production of A Christmas Carol, Stewart played over 40
characters, garnering an Olivier, Drama Desk and What's on Stage Award.
Perhaps best known as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of "Star Trek: The Next
Generation," both on television and film, and as Professor Charles Xavier from
the X-MEN films, Stewart has also enjoyed a successful film and television
career, earning Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG Award nominations.
Screen appearances include KING OF TEXAS, JEFFREY, DUNE, EXCALIBUR, LA STORY,
ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS, CONSPIRACY THEORY, "Extras," (for which he earned an
Emmy nomination), THE LION IN WINTER, I, CLAUDIUS, AND TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER
SPY. His vocal talents have been heard on "The Simpsons," "American Dad" and
"Family Guy," and as narrator of Seth MacFarlane's hit comedy, TED.
Stewart recently completed production on the Israeli film HUNTING ELEPHANTS
and the film adaptation of Stephen Belber's MATCH and will soon reprise his role
as Professor Xavier in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.
