"I'll Go On" by Samuel Beckett opens Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City
Previews of the Gate Theatre production are January 10 and 11.
A celebrated interpreter of Beckett, Barry McGovern is known to Los Angeles audiences for his performance as Vladimir in the acclaimed 2012 production of "Waiting for Godot" at the Mark Taper Forum (LADCC Awards, Best Revival and Best Ensemble; Ovation Award Best Production and Best Ensemble).
"I'll Go On," which is based on three of Beckett's novels – "Molloy," "Malone Dies" and "The Unnamable," is directed by Colm Ó Briain. Texts from the works have been selected by Gerry Dukes and McGovern.
