Broadway's NO MAN'S LAND & WAITING FOR GODOT Enters Final Week of Performances

There is only one more week to see the acclaimed productions of Harold Pinter's NO MAN'S LAND and Samuel Beckett's WAITING FOR GODOT starring Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Billy Crudup, Shuler Hensley directed by Sean Mathias on Broadway at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street). After two extensions, the plays must close Sunday, March 30.

As of Sunday, March 30, NO MAN'S LAND will have played 15 previews and 67 regular performances and WAITING FOR GODOT will have played 16 previews and 78 regular performances.

$30 rush tickets are available throughout the run for both NO MAN'S LAND and WAITING FOR GODOT. The front row of the orchestra and other locations are available exclusively to rush ticket buyers. Tickets are available for purchase beginning at 10am daily (and 12pm on Sundays) for $30.00 (including facility fee), two tickets maximum per person, on the day of the performance, subject to availability. Tickets must be purchased in person at the Cort Theatre box office.

In NO MAN'S LAND, two elderly writers, having met in a London pub, continue drinking and talking into the night. All might be well, until the return home of two younger men. Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity, in one of Pinter's most entertaining plays.

In WAITING FOR GODOT, two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.

Alternating in the role of 'The Boy' in WAITING FOR GODOT are Colin Critchley and Aidan Gemme.

Designs for the productions include sets and costumes by Stephen Brimson Lewis (Indiscretions), lighting by Peter Kaczorowski (Contact, The Producers) sound and music by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (Breakfast At Tiffany's), projections by Zachary Borovay (Ann) and hair and make-up by Tom Watson (The Assembled Parties).
