Samuel Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot”

Waiting for Godot

Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets: General $17; Student & Senior $14

In a black-and-white world of ragged tramps, on the assumption (denied by Beckett) that Godot signifies God, this play has been called the ultimate existential tragedy–if such is possible. (In the language of the play, French, God–or Dieu–in no way resembles Godot. It is only coincidental that English shows a connection.) In a colorful world of unimaginative repetitions, it may be boring or pitiful or hilarious, depending upon the characters’ attitudes of “that’s all there is, folks,” “shouldn’t there be more,” or “ain’t it grand?” Or in a magical world of potentially unlimited possibilities, it might be the quiet exhilaration of enduring transitory, though incomprehensible, trials.
