This fall, Carnegie is putting on two productions: Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot and William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. These classics are both worth seeing, as each has a completely different set, cast, and story.
Waiting for Godot
Waiting for Godot is a comedic play dampened with tragedy. Near a roadside tree, two tramps, played by Nico Michel and Jackson Burnham, meet as they do each day: to wait for Godot. While waiting, they discuss everything from vegetables to suicide to urinary troubles. Filled with absurdism, this thought-provoking play will make you laugh at and wonder about the world.
“We’re waiting for Godot.” — Waiting for Godot
Macbeth is a play of ambition. Driven to become King, Macbeth and his wife Lady Macbeth, played by Edwin Mendoza and Hailey J Strader respectively, are willing to kill anyone in their way. Putting faith in the words of witches, the couple faces the deadly retaliations of their scheming for greatness. This play is full of anticipation, and will send a shiver down your spine.
Waiting for Godot is premiering at Carnegie this Friday, October 10, and will also be performed on October 11 and 17 at 7:00pm. Macbeth is premiering the following week, with shows on October 18, 24, and 25 at 7:00pm. There is also a matinee for Macbeth on the 18th at 2:00pm. Buy tickets from any member of ITS or anyone who is a part of the show. Tickets are $10 presale and $18 at the door, so reserve your seat ahead. See you there!
