Center for the Arts in Homer

November 20, W8ING

7 pm and 9 pm, Center for the Arts, 72 S. Main St., Homer. A modern spin on the classic absurdist work by Samuel Beckett, WAITING FOR GODOT, as re-imagined by local volunteer Jack Carr. GODOT remains controversial even after 60 years of revival after revival, starring the likes of Burt Lahr (The Cowardly Lion), Robin Williams, Steve Martin, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Carr has organized several unstaged readings of his new version, at Cazenovia College with an all-female cast and featuring original music by Lutz Mayer, in several discussion classes at SUNY Cortland, and most recently at the lately lamented Blue Frog in downtown Cortland. A blatant fundraiser to support the work of the Center, it also marks the return of the Paul Yaman First Steps Play Reading Series to encourage new stage works. A cash bar of non-alcoholic seasonal beverages will kick off two performances, with the 7 pm show featuring female actors and the 9 pm showing off the men. Talkbacks will be facilitated by the playwright and the actors. For more information visit
