Albany’s Confetti Stage Kicks off New Year with “Waiting for Godot” [Berkshire on Stage]
Preview by Larry Murray
It’s been worth the wait, for ever since Confetti Stage, Inc. announced they were planning their own production of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, we’ve been waiting, too, for all the details. It’s one of our favorite plays, and besides, it’s been a decade since they began, staging their inaugural production, ‘night, Mother, by Marsha Norman in January, 2005. Since then, the company has successfully brought to the stage over 40 productions, performing in several Capital Region communities.
The snarks say it’s a two-act play in which absolutely nothing happens.
But that misses the point. Others say it is about waiting to die, “They’re actually waiting for God, can’t you see that in the title?”
