What We’re Reading

Despite success in Europe, “Waiting for Godot” only
gradually finds its audience in the United States.
At its premiere in Miami, many theatergoers walk out,
having been led to expect the “laugh sensation of two
continents.” At one point, though, Beckett grows
practically giddy over talk that its two tramps might
be played on Broadway by Buster Keaton and Marlon Brando.
