Ambitious, Clever, Funny, Great writing, Quirky

See it if You're a theatre-buff, know "Waiting for Godot", like interpretive pieces, comedy, and very clever writing. Best part -theatre is by my job

Don't see it if You're offended by male nudity, simulated peeing on stage, homosexuals, small staging, or dislike "Waiting for Godot" Read more

Clever, Funny, Refreshing, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You are a Beckett fan, know Waiting for Godot, a bit of theater history & theory and are open to protagonists "waiting" in their underpants.

Don't see it if You are a strict traditionalist, object to male nudity, are not interested in ideas regarding playwrights' intentions/modernization of plays Read more

Theatre is Easy
September 28th, 2016

"'The Underpants Godot' is a playful think piece with a meta-theatrical structure that heightens the questions illuminated within the fiction...This play might not be every viewer’s cup of tea: while the themes may be of interest to a general audience, its humor seems predominantly pointed towards theater practitioners. What is perhaps more widely amusing is the visual imagery...While Pflaster’s script raises compelling questions, at many times it feels a little preachy and verbose."

Times Ledger
September 23rd, 2016

"It is at once a farcical look at the theater business, an examination of the problems involved in reinterpreting an author’s work and a look at how sexuality influences the way we look at art...The acting is of a uniformly high quality. Simon, as the Beckett estate representative, has the comic timing and loopy body language of a natural comedian, and she uses it to good effect here. Walsh, as the director, is equally funny."
