IndyFringe review: "Waiting with M'Godot" 

Like Beckett's masterpiece, Steve Pierce's Waiting with M'Godot is sparsely staged and consists primarily of a dialogue between two characters that borders at every instance upon the absurd. The similarities cease there, however, as Pierce's production is light and comedic where Beckett's delves into the realm of darkness and divine apathy. Waiting with M'Godot can best be seen as a postmodern version of the original, in which the characters are no wiser to their existential predicament than were Vladimir and Estragon, but have found novel means of fending off hopelessness. Especially noteworthy is the hilarious portrayal by Kurt Owens of Monsieur Godot, an enigmatic waiter who illustrates to a man awaiting his date the absurdities of modern life as seen through the ritual of dating. Thursday, 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10:30 p.m.
