Waiting for Waiting for Godot
by Dave Hanson
Who has it worse than Vladimir and Estragon, the two poor saps caught in the gears of existential ennui in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot? The two guys understudying the part of Vladimir and Estragon, of course.” (~ Time Out New York)
Val and Ester are two actors waiting backstage as understudies, while they pass the time talking, fighting, learning, and singing with recurring subjects of time, suffering for your art, and following rules. Where in Beckett’s work the actors are waiting for Godot, in this production that unknown entity is switched out for the ever elusive and intimidating director. Quips are made that mock actors and the experience of being in the theatre/theatre classes/show business. (Shoshana Roberts – theasy.com)
