Waiting For Godot
Waiting For Godot – Theater Review
Samuel Beckett’s new play. “Waiting for Godot” is the story of one’s life lived to the fullest.
I’m not sure that “Waiting for Godot” is anybody’s favorite play, but if you’ve ever wanted to see it, this is certainly the production to see of Samuel Beckett’s, what some people consider an existential masterpiece. It stars Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, John Goodman, and John Glover. This is the one against which all the other ones will be judged. The first act is okay, but the second act will blow your socks off. To tell you what it’s about — well, I’m not sure anyone’s ever been able to tell anybody what “Waiting for Godot” is about. But it’s maybe about existence, and maybe about the presence of God, and maybe about friendship, and maybe about life, and maybe about death, and maybe about fascism. You can figure out what it’s about, but don’t miss the Roundabout Theater’s presentation of “Waiting for Godot”. Five stars.
