Bloomsday proudly presents an Equity Showcase production of GODOT AT THE COCONUT GROVE a new comedy by Colleen Curran. Waiting for Godot by James Joyce’s pal Samuel Beckett made its American premiere in January 1956 at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami, Florida. One of the stars of this legendary fiasco advertised as “the laugh sensation on two continents” was Bert Lahr famous for playing The Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. Corey Castle directs Gordon Masten as Lahr, Jude Beny as Millie Lahr, Colleen Curran and Jasmine Winter as workers Roz and Eve of the Coconut Grove and Castelina Massuda as Mary Bettino a very perplexed member of the opening night audience.
This is “A slice of American theatre history mixed with many, many laughs!”
