Tickets for the new Roundabout Theatre Company production of the Samuel Beckett masterpiece will be available Jan. 21-Feb 5. to AmEx members online at www.roundabouttheatre.org, by phone at (212) 719-1300 or at the Studio 54 theatre box office (254 West 54th Street). Ticket prices range from $36.50-$116.50.
Studio 54, which is currently the home of the revival of Pal Joey, will welcome the starry revival of Beckett's Waiting for Godot, directed by Tony winner Anthony Page, April 3. Opening night is April 30.
Waiting for Godot, according to Roundabout, "revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone — or something — named Godot. Vladimir (Bill Irwin) and Estragon (Nathan Lane) wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting 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."
Public on-sale begins Feb. 6. Through ACCESS Roundabout, 100 tickets will be available for the first preview performance (April 3) for only $10 each.

In addition to Pal Joey, Roundabout's current other Broadway production is Hedda Gabler starring Mary-Louise Parker, at the American Airlines Theatre on West 42nd Street. It opens Jan. 25.
