First Love: LEGO “Endgame”!

Posted August 16th, 2010

Samuel Beckett was famously wary of adapting his plays from one medium to another. In response, YouTube users have unanimously said, “We don’t care!” This week we’re running YouTube’s finest interpretations and parodies of Beckett plays to get you in the mood for the 2010 Live Arts Festival production First Love by Samuel Beckett, performed by Conor Lovett.

Today’s installment: how you know your kid’s a savant. The first scene from Beckett’s play Endgame, animated with Legos.

First Love by Samuel Beckett runs for four performances September 3 through 5. Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia. Various times, $25-30.
