by Samuel Beckett
"An ideal Endgame, smartly cast, sensitively staged and glisteningly faithful to the author's intentions. Carey Perloff, ACT's artistic director and the director of this production, has done herself and her company proud.
When Endgame is done well, as is the case at ACT, its excesses of explicitness are easy to forgive. The play's not-quite-slapstick is enacted with delicate subtlety in Ms. Perloff's staging, and Mr. Gabriel's stiff-legged, sweetly patient and unexpectedly youthful Clov (a nice touch) is one of the finest interpretations of a Beckett role that I've had the privilege to see. Scarcely less convincing are Mr. Havergal and Ms. Oliver, who give the uncanny, absolutely convincing impression of having known one another for decades."
