New Yiddish Rep New York
In Yiddish with English Surtitles

Directed by Moshe Yassur, in an authorised translation by Shane Baker, the production attempts to restore “Godot” to its language of origin. It convincingly returns the play to
the historical context of post WW II Europe in which Beckett was writing, in effect tracing it to its elemental moral and social roots. Beckett, a member of the French Resistance, wrote the play in French in 1948-49.The production’s distinguished New York cast is multi-lingual and multi-ethnic: a star of both English and Yiddish productions across the US, Avi Hoffman plays Pozzo; Rafael Goldwaser, who runs Théâtre en l’Air in Strasbourg, France, reprises his performance as Lucky; returning as the hapless hobos are Shane Baker, as Vladimir, and David Mandelbaum, new Yiddish Rep’s artistic director, as Estragon. The 9-year-old Nicholas Jenkins, as the boy, also makes the trip to Enniskillen.
