Once upon a time, there were two long-time pals, Didi and Gogo. They waited by the side of a road for a friend of theirs (at least they thought he was a friend) who promised he would come. Didi and Gogo needed to meet up with him because this friend (they were pretty sure he was a friend) was supposed to give them some extremely important information.
They waited and waited and waited and waited. Didi and Gogo were convinced the friend would show up eventually---after all, he promised he would. So they waited some more.
They tried to fill time with this and that---clever conversation, fun games, and even spirited arguments. Some interesting people passed by on the way to wherever or somewhere. That provided some entertainment. But Didi and Gogo became increasingly frustrated. Was their supposed friend ever going to show up and give them the information they so desperately needed?
Gogo: I can't go on like this. Didi: That's what you think. Gogo: If we parted? That might be better for us.
Then things got really tense and...
But why spoil the ending for you? Come to Brecksville Theatre and we'll show you how things worked out.
Waiting for Godot is a tragicomedy by Samuel Beckett.
One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.
