Classical Theatre of Harlem to Stage Waiting for Godot May 17-June 25

News   Classical Theatre of Harlem to Stage Waiting for Godot May 17-June 25 Samuel Beckett's classic Waiting for Godot will be the next attraction at the Classical Theater of Harlem. It will run May 17 to June 25 at the company's 645 St. Nicholas Ave. home base.

The selection replaces Friedrich Durrenmatt's The Physicists in CTH’s season. Christopher McElroen, co-founder of The Classical Theatre of Harlem, will direct. No casting for Didi, Gogo, Pozzo and Lucky has been announced.

Beckett's most famous play tells of two tramps waiting endlessly in an upspecified wasteland for the mysterious Godot, whom they expect daily but who never shows up. The tedium is broken up by visits from the tyrannical Pozzo and his mute (except when he talks endlessly) slave Lucky.

CTH's most recent production was a revival of Adrienne Kennedy's Funnyhouse of a Negro. Other past show include Mother Courage, The Blacks: A Clown Show, Native Son, The Crazy Locomotive, Rhinoceros and Ain't Supposed To Die A Natural Death Tickets will be $35.00.
