I read a review that maintained having McKellen and Stewart on stage was too much like just that: having two major stars on stage as part of a very small cast, seeming to suck all the air out of the room, taking away from the power of the production.

That was the ridiculous New Yorker review. The production was just amazing. I've seen a lot of Godots in my day, and this was easily the best one, the one that really got the friendship between Didi and Gogo. That review was just a bit of shameful preening on Hilton Als's part.

Hilton Als, like many drama critics, can be rather petty. I'll take your word for it that it's great.

Did I not post about seeing it? Couldn't get to No Man's Land but the Godot was wonderful.

Yeah, I guess I didn't. Maybe I'll try to reconstruct my thoughts....
