Beckett’s revolutionary vision of perpetual uncertainty, anxiety and loneliness is refracted through our current moment of perpetual uncertainty, anxiety and loneliness. Bringing together a roster of lauded artists from across the cultural spectrum, this experimental exploration of a storied play combines theatrical invention and innovative filmmaking. The New Group Off Stage’s Waiting for Godot is at once both a faithful realization of a classic work and an artistic expression of now.

This first project of The New Group Off Stage features  Ethan Hawke (Vladimir), John Leguizamo (Estragon), Wallace Shawn (Lucky), Tarik Trotter (Pozzo) and Drake Bradshaw (Boy).


Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is presented through special arrangement with Georges Borchardt, Inc. on behalf of The Estate of Samuel Beckett. Generous support for Waiting for Godot is provided by The Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater.

The New Group Off Stage is presented in association with NŌ Studios and Frank Marshall.  Select New Group Off Stage projects are a co-production of MiLa Media. The New Group is supported in part by The National Endowment for the Arts.
