An 80-year-old man who attended opening night of No Man's Land at Berkeley Rep on Sunday reportedly passed out with about 30 minutes left in the second act of the play. He was taken out to the lobby and given emergency medical attention, however he refused to let them call an ambulance until he could watch the end of the play, which stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Billy Crudup, and Shuler Hensley.

According to the NY Post, the man continued to watch the end of the play on the video screens they have out in the lobby, and only afterward was taken to the hospital.

McKellen tweets in response today:

You can still attempt to get cancellation tickets for the sold out run of the show by way of Facebook, or by calling by calling the box office at 510 647-2949 between noon and 7 p.m. each day.
