Did You Know?


The 5th actor in "Waiting for Godot" is simply described as The Boy. In the "Play of the Week" version of this iconic play, the part of The Boy is played by Luke Halpin who had previously acted in many of the famous TV shows during the golden age of television and a few Broadway plays. His performance in "Waiting for Godot" caught the eye of producer Ivan Tors who cast Halpin a year later as Sandy Ricks in the movie Flipper which spawned a sequel movie and the popular TV show of the same name launching Halpin into the rarefied atmosphere of a teen super star.

8 November 2005 | by (Norman, Oklahomie) – See all my reviews

This must be amazing. Burgess Meredith and Zero Mostel playing Vladimir and Estragon... I can only imagine how good this is.

My brother saw this play off-Broadway with Christopher Lloyd and Tony Shaloub in the main roles, which I really would like to have seen.

This play is truly the best of Samuel Beckett's works, with the possible exception of Krapp's last tape.

There is also a film of Beckett's called, "Film" starring Buster Keaton, which must be astounding.

I wonder if there is a way to find these lost gems?

Does it make a difference is Beckett is done on screen versus on stage?

Why must this comment be ten lines long?

It seems rather pointless and fascist, but only in the way that I interpret it.

Can anything be done?

She has gone and done it again.

Won't somebody tell her?
