The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone - or something - named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, in habiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind's inexhaustible search for meaning.
"Waiting for Godot" originally opened on B'way on Apr 19, 1956 under the auspices of Michael Myerberg. Herbert Berghof directed a cast which featured Bert Lahr (Estragon) & E.G. Marshall (Vladimir).
