Samuel Beckett's most famous work, Waiting for Godot, opens in The Catastrophic Theatre's new space, following the group's acclaimed production of Beckett's End Game last year. Godot is directed by Jason Nodler, artistic director of the Catastrophic, who tells us, ''Waiting for Godot was the first and remains the best play to express the feeling of life as an absurdity and existence as a futility. The people of the play seek meaning but never find it; they wait for an unknown and unknowable thing that will never come, as do we all.'' He also says it's ''very, very funny.'' The cast for Godot includes two actors lauded for their performances in End Game, Greg Dean and Troy Schulze.
