Waiting … for a Happy New Year

by | Dec 27, 2011 | Review | 0 comments

Waiting for Godot divides theatregoers into two camps; you either love it or hate it.

The non-fans complain that it’s intimidating and/or boring. But, well produced, the play can be extremely funny—as well as harrowing. And good performers bring out the humanity, as well as the humour, in the text, making it emotionally accessible.

Blackbird Theatre’s production of Godot, which runs at the Cultch from December 29 to January 21, features Anthony F. Ingram and Simon Webb as Vladimir and Estragon, so we may be in luck.
