Waiting for Godot

With Tom McCamus & Stephen Ouimette

CBC Audio, 2000, ISBN 0-660-17981-4; 2 Cassettes; $15.95. [Browse/Purchase]

A recording of a 1997 Canadian production of Godot, directed by Brian Bedford and starring James Blendick, Joe Dinicol, Tim MacDonald, Tom McCamus, and Stephen Ouimette.
Review from From Audiofile:

Beckett’s Waiting for Godot has been called the quintessential play of the twentieth century. This 1997 Stratford Festival production, recorded before an audience in Toronto, benefits from good casting and wise direction. McCamus and Ouimette, as the attendant Vladimir and Estragon, have a rapport that’s evident from their first lines, and their rapid exchanges of dialogue are often very funny. Blendick brings a sonorous, Orson Welles-like voice to the frighteningly absurd character of Pozzo. The small ensemble adheres well, and it’s supported by convincing sound effects, music, and recording quality.
