i forgot to tell you guys the other night, but!! my stepdad fixes lifts and things, and the other day he was called to wyndhams theatre, where he proceeded to have conversations with sir cameron mackintosh about their broken lift, which was causing all sorts of drama because it was opening night etc etc. then my stepdad gets to witness this: sir ian mckellen comes down in just his dressing gown with a glass of champagne. ‘where’s Pat?’ he asks. cameron informs him that Pat, aka sir patrick stewart, has gone to fetch a paper. ian retreats, presumably to await his lover’s best friend’s return.
