Director, producer, writer and actor Robert Wilson is taking to the stage in Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape later this month. The show will be performed at Montclair State University’s
Alexander Kasser Theater starting next weekend (March 17).

The show has already received some critical acclaim, with The New York Times writer Roslyn Sulcas praising the production, writing (via Press Release):

“‘In Krapp’s Last Tape, Mr. Wilson gave a tour de force performance, a rarity for this theater director, whose stark, stylized aesthetic was here leavened and complemented by a style of movement that humorously recalled Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.’ -- Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times”

Press notes for the show go on to add:

“Robert Wilson. Samuel Beckett. Both towering figures of contemporary theater. Now comes the theatrical event of a lifetime -- Robert Wilson on stage performing Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, in a production he directed and designed. As Krapp, Wilson carries on a conversation with his own voice, recorded many years before. Bitter, ironic, funny, he finds it hard to recognize himself in the brash, romantic, confident voice of his youth. Since its premiere in 1958, Krapp’s Last Tape has fascinated audiences worldwide. Don’t miss this definitive moment of theater.”
