Waiting For Godot @ Studio 54

In Uncategorized on July 2, 2009 at 1:07 pm

Taking medicine generally is not a pleasant thing to do; but seeing this “important” Becket play some how is fun. Not much makes sense without giant synapse jumps that make you think you know what the play is “about”; NOT. and the four players; Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, John Goodman,and John Glover, are so accomplished that the nonsense seems to be conversation. There certainly is a disconnect that we all feel , that is we are the only one that doesn’t understand what is going on and M. Godot feeds that. The accomplishment of this play is that we accept the craziness as theater and I really like that. There is dramatic tension and humor, it is a comedy?, though out. I’m not sure we all laughed at the right things, but again the insecurity of not being on the inside is nervous humor. We all stood for an ovation, is that just to see what is going on or did we really like it? The lady in front of me sat behind a giant person and had to shift through the whole first act, was that part of the play? Luckily he left and she could see the second acr normally?
