Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents (in order of speaking) Nathan Lane (Estragon), Bill Irwin (Vladimir), John Goodman (Pozzo) and John Glover (Lucky) in a new Broadway production of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett and directed by Tony® award winner Anthony Page.
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.
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.
Waiting for Godot has been nominated for three Tony Awards including: Best Revival of a Play, Best Featured Actor in a Play (John Glover) and Best Costume Design of a Play (Jane Greenwood); two Drama Desk Awards including: Outstanding Revival of a Play & Outstanding Actor in a Play (Bill Irwin); five Outer Critic's Circle Awards including: Outstanding Revival of a Play, Outstanding Actor in a Play (Bill Irwin & Nathan Lane), Outstanding Director of a Play (Anthony Page) and Outstanding Set Design (Santo Loquasto); two Drama League Awards: Distinguished Performance (Bill Irwin & John Glover).
