Waiting For Godot on Broadway
Tony Award winner Nathan Lane (The Producers) returns to the Roundabout Theatre Company following the production of The Man Who Came to Dinner in 2000 at the American Airlines Theatre. Fellow Tony winner Bill Irwin returns to Roundabout for the first time since directing and starring in his adaptation of Scapin in 1997 and directing Feydeau’s A Flea in Her Ear in 1998, both at the Laura Pels Theatre. Anthony Page most recently directed Irwin in Albee's Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? on Broadway and now returns to Roundabout to direct Irwin and Lane in this production of the classic play Waiting For Godot.
A cornerstone of twentieth century theater, Waiting for Godot was playwright Samuel Beckett’s first professionally produced play. Godot premiered in Paris in 1953 and came to Broadway in 1956 in a production at the John Golden Theatre. Beckett’s distinctive language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existentialism of post-World War II Europe.

Waiting For Godot is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
Waiting for Godot remains playwright Samuel Beckett’s most magical and beautiful allegory. The story is about two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone – or something – called Godot. Estragon (Nathan Lane) and Vladimir (Bill Irwin) wait near a tree on an empty stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense, all of which has been interpreted as a somber summation of man’s inexhaustible search for meaning.
Anthony Page (Direction)
Samuel Beckett (Playwright)
Age No minimum age is specified by the theater, but babies cannot be brought to the show.
Summary Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin star in this classic existentialist play about two men waiting for someone (or something?) called Godot.
Our Recommendation Though the plot to Waiting For Godot is simple, the play itself - which is full of humor and intriguing ideas - is anything but. Over the years, Samuel Beckett's masterpiece has been interpreted a thousand different ways, and now audiences have another chance to try to decipher it in this top-class Broadway production, also starring John Goodman and John Glover.
