PRESS QUOTES FROM THE U.S. BECKETT TOUR OF ‘WATT’ AND ‘ENDGAME’ 2011


Watt and Endgame with Des Keogh, Rosaleen Linehan, Barry McGovern and Owen Roe are nearing the end of their U.S. tour, having completed their run in 3 of the 4 venues to rave reviews.
Here is a selection of some of the press they received in Ann Arbor, North Carolina and Philadelphia:

‘Gate Theatre's 'Watt' and 'Endgame' pack a terrific (and funny) punch... for Beckett fans, a better opportunity isn’t likely to present itself anytime soon.’
Annarbor.com

‘Seeing the work of Samuel Beckett performed by Dublin’s Gate Theatre company is akin to seeing Gilbert & Sullivan performed by D’Oyly Cart, hearing Wagner at the Bayreuth Festival, or seeing Shakespeare performed at the Globe Theatre. It’s a chance to experience the work of art in its natural habitat, performed by the people who care about it the most.’
Detroit Theater Examiner

‘hypnotic... to hear Beckett's beautiful prose and see it performed by people whose every nuance informs the text is truly a joy.’
Detroit Theater Examiner



WATT


‘a remarkable performance... The river of words runs for an hour and it is too short an hour: one could listen far longer’
CVNC Online Arts Journal in North Carolina

‘an hour-long amuse-bouche...wickedly funny’
Philadelphia Inquirer

‘Barry McGovern is an exceptional actor for whom Beckett comes as naturally as his own brogue, and the result is like standing under a rare and wonderful waterfall for an hour.’
Broad Street



ENDGAME


‘Masterfully directed by Alan Stanford, the Gate Theatre’s “Endgame” really does make you feel like you’re seeing Beckett’s work as the groundbreaking playwright intended. With laugh-out-loud exchanges...Stanford’s production revels in Beckett’s dry humor without ever pushing too hard.’
Annarbor.com

‘brilliantly played to the last freeze-frame’
CVNC Online Arts Journal in North Carolina

‘Gate Theatre of Dublin offers a rich and precise 'Endgame'... the production simply shines.’
Philadelphia Inquirer

‘Rosaleen Linehan’s face is a kaleidescope of love, nostalgia, awe: Pitch poignant.’
WRTI
