'The Wait Is Over', 'GODOT' Arrives on Bdwy 4/30

Roundabout Theatre Company's (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director)Waiting for Godot began previews Friday, April 3rd at 8:00PM. Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot stars (in order of speaking)Nathan Lane (Estragon), Bill Irwin (Vladimir), John Goodman (Pozzo),John Glover (Lucky) and is directed by Anthony Page at Studio 54 on Broadway. 

Waiting for Godot opens officially tonight, Thursday, April 30th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street). This will be a limited engagement through July 5th, 2009.

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.

The cast also includes Cameron Clifford and Matthew Schechter. The design team includes Santo Loquasto (Sets), Jane Greenwood(Costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (Lights) and Dan Moses Schreier(Sound).

Waiting for Godot opens officially on Thursday, April 30th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street). This will be a limited engagement through July 5th, 2009.
