Personal Quote:

When it first came out it was so avant-garde people didn't know what to make of it. It wasn't the kind of well-made play they were used to. The problem is, Waiting for Godot is like Mozart: too easy for children and too difficult for adults. See more »


Co-wrote two musicals and has directed plays as well as operas. See more »
