Community theater review: ‘Godot’ is one of Gamut’s best
by Jeff DeBell
It’s a gimmick to which the late playwright was famously and strenuously opposed – and just the kind of chancy ploy for which Gamut is admired by its growing audience.
And it works. Or, perhaps more accurately, it does no apparent harm.
After all, besides being regarded as an absurdist and existential masterpiece, “Godot” is a play to which every patron can apply his or her own interpretation, and who’s to say they’re right or wrong? Certainly Beckett offered little insight other than a few comments that were perhaps more cryptic than enlightening.
