Photo Flash: First Look at Seattle Shakespeare's WAITING FOR GODOT, Opening Tonight
Seattle Shakespeare Company's WAITING FOR GODOT by Samuel Beckett will be directed by George Mount at the Falls Theatre at ACT Theatre, 700 Union Street, Seattle, WA. The show opens tonight, September 5, 2014, and plays through Sunday, September 21, 2014. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
A lonely tree at the junction of a dirt road, on a day indistinguishable from any other day, two vagabond souls anxiously wait for their appointed meeting. They bicker, wheedle, tease, ponder, wonder and hold fast to anything that will give them a cause to live until the next day. Samuel Beckett introduced us to Vladimir and Estragon when the world lived in fear of nuclear annihilation. Since then these two clowns, as well as their fellow travelers Pozzo and Lucky, have helped us take one falteringly dangerous step after another into an unknown future.
