ABOUT
“ This greatest of 20th-century plays is also entertainment of a high order. ” – The New York Times

Didi and Gogo dally by the side of the road. They are expecting the imminent arrival of another man. They’ve asked this man for nothing definite, but eagerly anticipate his reply. And though they admit that they do not know him well and won’t even recognize him when they see him, they wait. They wait for Godot. | Voted most significant English language play of the 20th century by 800 playwrights, actors, directors and journalists in a poll by the Royal National Theatre

“A witty and poetic conundrum” – The Guardian

“Excellent, electrifying… ‘Godot’ is the Cincinnati Shakespeare Festival’s most flawless production ever, and it is the outstanding smaller theater company production of 1999… Minadakis’s direction is masterful. He gets everything right, including the long, thinking pauses. Silence isn't just golden. It’s funny and nerve-wracking.” – The Cincinnati Enquirer
