Waiting for Godot with Nathan Lane, John Goodman, Bill Irwin, John Glover

For many, this is the ultimate cast for Beckett's classic Waiting for Godot. They have given this classic enigma of a play a new lease on life, one we have been awaiting since last summer's incredible Godot at the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, MA which featured Randy Harrison as Lucky. In the Roundabout Theatre's version, Lucky is played by John Glover, who we all know from his dual roles in Love, Valour, Compassion (Broadway and the film version) and of course, the series Smallville where he gets to play next to Tom Welling and Michal Rosenbaum.

As we always try to do, we have found a special deal on tickets for our frugal friends, so that you can see this great cast - the incredible Nathan Lane, the incomparable Bill Irwin, the sensational John Goodwin (who blew the critics away) and the always surprising John Glover.

We'll be coming to NYC mid-July. Any chance this will still be playing?

The production is scheduled through July 12, 2009. Considering the demand for their actors, it's unlikely that there will be an extension. I would plan to watch the Tony awards this Sunday to get some samples of other shows that may be running. And I'll keep an eye out for ticket offers too.
