Waiting for Godot
Sean Mathias is doubly blessed. Not only is he directing two of the Broadway season’s most anticipated plays, Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, opening Nov. 24 and playing in repertory thru Mar. 2 at the Cort Theatre, he is guiding Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart—two actors who need no introduction—in both. Call it a tour de force whose time has come, as Mathias reveals in the following interview, conducted in late September when the plays were in rehearsal in New York.
