The Stars are "Waiting For Godot"

What a great night of theatre and acting master class! "Waiting for Godot" stars Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, John Goodman and John Glover who were featured on the “Charlie Rose Show.” Click here to watch all four stars discuss this classic play and its return to Broadway.

Waiting for Godot opened officially on Thursday, April 30th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street). The limited engagement has been extended through July 12th, 2009. It got some great notices. Here's a sampling;

“This ‘Waiting for Godot’ is a smart, engaging production and deeply satisfying. Mr. Page and his cast generate brisk comic liveliness throughout the show with tasty variety of style and pacing enforced by the grace of fine actors. ”
– Ben Brantley, New York Times

“Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival is beautifully simple — and very, very funny.”
– Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

Waiting for Godot remains Samuel Beckett’s most magical and beautiful allegory. The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone – or something – named Godot. Vladimir (Bill Irwin) and Estragon (Nathan Lane) wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning.
