One of the star actors from "The Lord of the Rings" franchise is lending his artistic spirit to a village in Westchester this weekend. Sir Ian McKellen gave special permission to the Rivertowns Playhouse in Irvington to produce a rare rendition of one of his plays. An all-star cast has been hard at work for weeks preparing to perform "Acting Shakespeare inside America's Wilderness" before a sold-out crowd this Saturday night. News 12 caught up with Kamran Saliani - the founder of the playhouse - ahead of the big show. There are eight performances over the next few weeks.
