And speaking of star turns, for one night only next Monday 13 February 2006, a sinister tale of murder and revenge, The Bells, will be performed at the West End’s Lyceum Theatre with a cast led by Steven Berkoff, to mark the centenary of the death of Sir Henry Irving. Irving became an overnight sensation in 1871, starring as Mathias in Leopold Lewis' chiller The Bells - a role he continued to play for decades, as actor-manager of the Lyceum. Top actors will pay tribute to the world’s first theatrical knight by bringing his immortal role back to the theatre where it made him a legend. The evening’s festivities will begin with Sir Ian McKellen unveiling an historic plaque by the theatre’s main entrance. Simon Callow will introduce the evening, followed by a rehearsed reading of The Bells which also features Sir Donald Sinden, Cherie Lunghi, Matthew Kelly and Ron Moody. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to Theatrecares, the UK theatre’s response to HIV and AIDS, facilitated by Crusaid.
