"It's difficult to imagine a funnier or more moving Godot anytime, anyplace.
- Bob Verini, Variety
"This is a Godot for the 21st century, perfect for an audience primed by Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm..."
- Paul Hodgins, Orange County Register
Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times, says: “I am champing at the bit for “Waiting for Godot,” with Alan Mandell and Barry McGovern sure to put on a Beckettian master class at the Mark Taper Forum.”
"Charming evening we're having."
"And it's not over."
Together for the first time, Alan Mandell and Barry McGovern — two of the most distinguished interpreters of Samuel Beckett’s work — delightfully debate the meaning of life and the absurdities of human behavior in this elegantly engaging, fiercely funny, relevant and illuminating new production exclusively at the Taper.
Academy Award® nominee James Cromwell (Babe, L.A. Confidential, The Artist), Hugo Armstrong and LJ Benet round out the cast. Michael Arabian directs.
Beckett's seminal work is widely recognized as the most significant play of the 20th Century. His "tragicomedy in two acts" tells the story of two men waiting on a country road: Waiting for Godot.
And what a thrilling wait it is.
