ENG 1050 Theater Review: GPAC’s Fall 2017 Production of Waiting for Godot
Assignment: Attend one of Givens Performing Arts Center’s performances of our student production of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, and write a review of it. There are three aspects of this writing assignment: description, response, and critique. Generally speaking, you should describe the experience and explain your reactions thoroughly, linking then directly to aspects of the performance.
Base your review on your knowledge of the text of the play, any other performances or versions of Waiting for Godot that you are familiar with, and your honest critical response: what stood out to you about it, what you liked about it, and what you didn’t like. You should discuss at least one scene, conversation, or speech by means of direct quotation of the play; don’t quote the whole thing, but just the part you want to discuss.
You should plan to take notes during the performance and take a small notebook or clipboard, etc., but please be respectful to other audience members and keep your note-taking unobtrusive. Please keep and attach to your review a ticket stub or program as proof of your attendance and documentation of which performance you attended. Please attach your notes or a representative sample of them (2 or 3 pages).i not need notes remove that
