Ah, November, when the nights draw in and we begin to take stock of another year, asking the hard, the existential, questions. This month, you can clutch your brow in good company. UH Manoa’s Kennedy Theatre presents Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot and Shakespeare’s Hamlet in repertory; the two shows share a cast, and play in alternating slots. That’s a treat for those of us who don’t like to wait weeks to see a new show. “These two shows are fascinating to watch in repertory,” says Paul Mitri, who is directing Hamlet. “They’re about the idea of waiting: waiting for the right time, waiting for something to happen. And how our choices define our future and who we are.” For more information, visit hawaii.edu/kennedy/ or call 944-2697.
