Setting the Scenes with Paul Kuhn

On today’s podcast, while “Waiting For Godot”, I ran into Paul Kuhn and we had a chat about the many memorable scenic designs of Curio Theatre Company. While Paul gets the credit, he reminds us that it takes a village to create the worlds that immerse the audience and even gives some tips on how not to limit your ideas. Stay Tuned!

Paul Kuhn – “Waiting For Godot” – Curio Theatre Company

ABOUT WAITING FOR GODOT

Dan Hodge, company member and director of Curio’s 2016 Barrymore recommended production of Death of a Salesman,  returns to direct the absurdist classic, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.

Meet Vladimir and Estragon on a country road as they await the coming of Godot. How long they wait, who else they meet, and if Godot shall ever arrive, is the matter of much banter, antics and reverie. Considered one of the most significant plays of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett’s tragicomic masterpiece is funny, poignant, soulful and hilarious.

Featuring:
Brian McCann, Paul Kuhn
Robert DaPonte and Harry Slack

Lighting Design- Tim Martin
