Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart And Elmo Take Times Square: PHOTO


Just an hour ago, some 30 floors down from NewNowNext headquarters in Times Square, Sirs Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart took a snapshot with one of the many Elmos  that meander around the Crossroads of the World. (Thank God they didn’t pose with Naked Cowboy—that would just be weird.)

We know Stewart just got married to girlfriend Sunny Ozell, but we’re so tickled he’s finding time for his best mate, co-star and wedding officiant. For more Stewellan goodness (McKelart?) get thee some tickets to Two Plays in Rep, their rotating performances of Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land.
