2017 | 01 Waiting for Godot

Two men, loitering by a withered tree, wait… perhaps they wait there still.

The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre is pleased to announce its production of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, directed by Jessica Arnold. It opens Friday, January 20, at 8:00 PM and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM through February 5. There is a $5 preview performance Thursday, January 19 at 8pm.

In this, Beckett’s masterpiece, two men, Vladimir and Estragon, meet near a tree where they both wait for someone named Godot. While they wait, they meet Pozzo and his slave, Lucky and a messenger boy (or two), and contemplate life, death and food.

Brilliant in its use of metaphor and rhythm, Godot is as much a poem as a play. In turns witty, bitter, tragic and comic, this absurdist masterpiece is an enigma, wrapped in a mystery and tied with riddles.

“…moving, often funny, grotesquely beautiful and utterly absorbing.” —NY Post

“…at once pathetic and hilarious.” —NY World-Telegram
