Waiting for Godot 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 3 p.m. Continues through May 9 2010
Price: $15
“The big whatsit,” Mike Hammer calls the mysterious doomsday device at the heart of Kiss Me, Deadly: He could just as well be referring to Samuel Beckett’s enigmatic 1953 play, famously (and admiringly) described as “a play in which nothing happens, twice.” Existential vaudeville, purgatorial plaint, allegorical enacting of man’s search for an absent God — Beckett’s work situates itself at the crossroads of Sartre and Abbott & Costello, where the cosmic hoboes Vladimir and Estragon await a sign, any sign, that their wait for the unseen Godot will somehow be rewarded. In a swaggering show of range, the Amun Ra Theatre follows up its production of Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye with Robert Kiefer’s staging, featuring David Chattam as Vladimir, Joel Diggs as Estragon, and support from Mark J. Thomas, David Arnell and Ke’Mon Blanton. Next up: Amun Ra founder jeff obafemi carr and Eddie George in Suzan-Lori Parks’ blistering Topdog/Underdog.
