Entertainment Review
This article presents the author's views on theater. Looking back at the past several months in Dublin, I see that here too a wealthy theatre is living off its traditions. There has been at least one permanent theater in the city continuously. Though English-speaking, this tradition cannot be regarded as an alien development for Dublin. In the Pike Theater, a converted garage which seats about 55 people, Dubliners have seen a Abbey-style performance of "Waiting for Godot."
