Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are the new toasts of Broadway thanks to their turns in the Cort Theatre's production of Waiting for Godot and No Man's Land (4 performances a week of each play).
More crucially, however, they are the best of friends, and have been gallivanting around New York, taking wonderful pictures, which we're rounding up for you to adore alongside us. (The pair are wearing bowler hats as a nod to their Godot characters.)
Fun fact: If you Google "Patrick Stewart Ian McKellen," the third auto-complete result is "-friends." The fourth is "-best friends."
