  • Actors Patrick Stewart (L) and Ian McKellen speak at the 20th Century Fox panel during Comic-Con International 2013 at San Diego Convention Center on July 20, 2013 in San Diego, California.

The opening night of Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land” at Berkeley Rep must have really been socko, because the New York Post reports that after an 80-year-old man collapsed in the audience, he refused to be taken to the hospital until after the play was over.

The drama stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley and has been getting rave reviews -- and apparently deservedly so, if someone will risk their own end to find out how it ends.
