I enjoy Beckett. He is difficult to stage because of his post-modern absurdist style. The acting was good, not great. Ditto with the direction. It needed to be tighter to be more effective. Worth seeing, as Beckett isn't often staged.

We absolutely loved the production. There was a little residual noise from the mainstage audience, but I think that was likely because of mainstage show opening the night we were there. The players and direction served the play beautifully.

Every production I've ever seen of Godot was funny. This interpretation was dark, confrontational, and slow-moving. The actors were talented (especially Lucky), but I just didn't enjoy it.

Description

Waiting For Godot is the story of two thieves waiting in a void for a mysterious stranger. Their days are spent by the side of a road concocting rituals spun from their own consciousness. Part play, part poem, part dream, Beckett’s masterpiece remains one of the most fiercely funny and profound allegories of our time.
