Waiting for Godot Comes to Broadway, Starts Performances April 3, 2009

If you've never had the chance to see Nathan Lane (famous for his starring roles in The Odd Couple and a Best Actor Tony Award for The Producers) in a Broadway Show, now is your chance theater friends. Beginning Friday April 3, 2009 you can get to see Mr. Lane along with Bill Irwin (who is best known for his Tony Award-winning Best Actor role as George in Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolff in 2005) at Studio 54 in New York. Mr. Irwin has won a total of 5 Tony Awards, 4 of them for Largely New York, a show he wrote, directed, starred and choreographed himself several years ago. Mr. Irwin is really a vaudeville-style stage actor and clown with many talents.

Mr. Lane and Mr. Irwin will be co-starring in a revival of a very unique comedy called Waiting for Godot. Written by Samuel Beckett with direction by Anthony Page and scenic design by Santo Loquasto, Waiting for Godot tells the tale of 2 men, Vladamir and Estragon that are waiting on a barren stretch of road waiting for someone named Godot. As the men wait, they occupy themselves eating, sleeping, talking, arguing, singing, exercising, swapping hats and playing games together. They even admit that they wouldn't recognize Godot if they saw him. They imagine that things are not what they appear to be while waiting. It sounds like one crazy way to "pass the time" right? Many who have seen Waiting for Godot have interpreted the play to signify mankind's true search for real life meaning.

I've seen Nathan Lane in several movies and on the Broadway stage numerous times and have heard that Bill Irwin is "one of the funniest actors" ever to appear on a stage or in film. I'm planning on seeing the show during the first week or two of previews at Studio 54 in New York City. I am hoping this theater won't be too large a venue as the last time it played, the show venue was at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater in Lincoln Center. A much smaller theater for sure.
