Beckett's WAITING FOR GODOT has been called the quintessential play of the twentieth century. This 1997 Stratford Festival production, recorded before an audience in Toronto, benefits from good casting and wise direction. McCamus and Ouimette, as the attendant Vladimir and Estragon, have a rapport that's evident from their first lines, and their rapid exchanges of dialogue are often very funny. Blendick brings a sonorous, Orson Welles-like voice to the frighteningly absurd character of Pozzo. The small ensemble adheres well, and it's supported by convincing sound effects, music, and recording quality. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
