Don’t miss ‘Waiting For Godot’

Waiting For Godot

A few weeks back I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Los Angeles premiere of a shiny new production of Waiting For Godot, down at the Mark Taper Forum (one of LA’s best intimate venues). I was already pretty familiar with Samuel Beckett‘s 1953 absurdist play (hailed as one of the most influential works of the 20th century) but I had never seen a live production. It turned out to be an excellent and highly enjoyable evening, I hadn’t seen such a solid play in ages, I was completely mesmerized. The two main players, Alan Mandell (Estragon) and Barry McGovern (Vladimir) were brilliant along with James Cromwell (Pozzo). The plot is fairly simple, it’s the tale of two men anxiously awaiting for someone named Godot, be assured that hilarity does indeed ensue while they wait for the mysterious Godot to arrive! The show is running now through April 22nd, so unfortunately time is running out, I cannot recommend this play enough, if you’re a fan of theater, don’t miss Waiting For Godot.

Waiting For Godot

Samuel Beckett’s seminal work is widely recognized as the most significant play of the 20th Century. His “tragicomedy in two acts” tells the story of two men waiting on a country road: Waiting for Godot. And what a thrilling wait it is.
