While Samuel Beckett stubbornly maintained that his iconic play about two tragicomic hobo clowns waiting for a man who never arrives was “not much,” the world has tried to pour dozens of interpretations into the stark work: existential, Christian, Freudian, Jungian, homoerotic, nihilistic, Cold War political, and so on. For the Seattle Beckett Festival, some of our best talents will try to dance with Beckett’s enigma: director George Mount and actors Todd Jefferson Moore, Darragh Kennan, Chris Ensweiler, and Jim Hamerlinck. (ACT Theatre, 700 E Union St, seattlebeckettfest.org, 7:30 pm, pay what you will, through Sept 21)
