A&E Highlights: “Waiting for Godot”
“Waiting for Godot”
Firehouse Center for the Arts | March 23 – 31
In 1998, The National Theatre asked over 800 playwrights, actors, directors, theater professionals and art journalists to select the 10 most significant English-language plays of the 20th century. The play sitting atop that list: Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot.” Called by its author “a tragicomedy in two acts,” the play is a translation of his original French version, “En attendant Godot,” and centers on the conversations of two characters named Vladimir and Estragon waiting for a man called — you guessed it — Godot. Think of it as Buster Keaton meets Schopenhauer. Spoiler alert: Godot never arrives.
Firehouse Center for the Arts is responsible for the production of this version, with Stephen Haley (who has served as choreographer for fellow Newburyport arts company Exit Dance Theatre) directing.
