    Have you ever waited for someone for a long time? Someone that just never seems to arrive? You already have an idea of how the two main characters in Waiting for Godot, Vladimir and Estragon, feel. They are waiting for a man named Godot. They keep trying to do something to keep from getting too bored while waiting. Samuel Beckett wrote the play in the early 50s and it premiered on the January 5, 1953. It was an instant success and has been produced many times since then. It has become one of the modern classics and various interpretations of the play have been performed over the years. There have been versions with two women playing Vladimir and Estragon. Beckett himself hasn’t been all that enthused by the prospect of two women, because it doesn’t fit in with his vision. The current production of Waiting for Godot has the great actors Bill Irwin and Nathan Lane, with John Goodman in a supporting role. Take a look at Waiting for Godot at Studio 54 and find tickets to see a great show!
