This happened in Australia, he kept the dollar by his mirror in the green room for the rest of the tour. Saw it in Perth :)

Saw this in London. My biggest claim to fame is that if you google my name the first image that comes up is a 16 year old me with Ian mcKellan in a dressing gown after watching this play

You misunderstood. In British English a tramp is a homeless person. Normal_Person is in the right here.

Sorry, but how does that outfit even come close to revealing? She even has a jacket on and that purse it so big it covers half her torso anyway :p

There was a famous Dave Chapelle sketch kit where he talks about how women go to clubs looking like whores and get offended when people think of them otherwise. He goes on to say that he wants to wear a cops uniform around so when people come screaming to him for help, he can be like, "OH OH OH, just because I am wearing a police uniform does NOT make me a police officer." =/ Just making reference to the joke =X

Sir Ian McKellen in Waiting for Godot? Where is this and why do I not have tickets yet?

Broadway. The best part is he is playing opposite of Patrick Stewart.

I'm hoping you mean Broadway, Blackburn, England. Otherwise I'm going to have to get a ticket to NY too
