Ian McKellen: Alladin’s Widow Twankey

During Christmas 2004, Sir Ian McKellen (our Mel Hutchwright) played Widow Twankey in Aladdin at London's Old Vic Theatre.

“We can tell our grandchildren that we saw McKellen’s Twankey and it was huge,” chortled Michael Billington in The Guardian.

Watch a short video clip of his performance as the pantomime dame.
