A remarkable work
25 February 2011 | by stan-bryant91See all my reviews

Yes it was a very good production, I have experienced "Godot" numerous times in my life before and after the performance by Ralph Waite & Dana Elcar. it was Filmed out in the Desert in conjunction with KCET the Local PBS Station for L.A. if anyone has a copy to sell, It will probably will be through them. the piece was originally worked out as a staged version done at Mr. Waite's Los Angeles Actors Theater, And yes it was In a very seedy area of Hollywood, as admission was free to all performances, the resulting audiences were a curious mix of regular LA theater goers, prostitutes, drug addicts, and ever small children from the neighborhood whom attended the show many times, the point being that attending a performance us truly a unique experience, and the KCET version really did capture a good deal of that, like a junkie, I have sought out performances of Godot up and down the west coast and haven't seen anything quite so remarkable. Thank you Ralph.
