Show Summary Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin star in this classic existentialist play about two men waiting for someone (or something?) called Godot.

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.
