“Tony Award winners Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley will join Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in the limited season repertoire of Harold Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND and Samuel Beckett’s WAITING FOR GODOT on Broadway at the this fall.”

The play opens November 24th at the Cort Theatre in New York City.

No Man’s Land – A review from The Guardian 1975;
“the sense of being caught in some mysterious limbo between life and death, between a world of brute reality and one of fluid uncertainty. … the play is a masterly summation of all the themes that have long obsessed Pinter: the fallibility of memory, the co-existence in one man of brute strength and sensitivity, the ultimate unknowability of women, the notion that all human contact is a battle between who and whom. … It is in no sense a dry, mannerist work but a living, theatrical experience full of rich comedy in which one speech constantly undercuts another.” Wiki

Waiting for Godot;
“An absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. Godot’s absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play’s 1953 premiere. It was voted “the most significant English language play of the 20th century”.
