WAITING FOR GODOT Plays Final Performance 7/12 At Studio 54
Roundabout Theatre Company's (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of Waiting for Godot will play its final performance on Sunday, July 12that 2:00 PM. This revival of Samuel Beckett's classic play stars (in order of speaking) Nathan Lane (Estragon), Bill Irwin (Vladimir), John Goodman (Pozzo) and John Glover (Lucky), directed by Anthony Page.
Waiting for Godot will have played 31 preview performances and 85 regular performances. Previews began on April 3rd, 2009 and opened officially on April 30th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St).
The cast also includes Cameron Clifford (A Boy) and Matthew Schechter (A Boy). The design team includes Santo Loquasto (Sets), Jane Greenwood (Costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (Lights) and Dan Moses Schreier (Sound).
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.
Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Studio 54 theatre box office (254 West 54th Street).
