    Under the Tucson Sun

    Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, John Goodman and David Strathairn will all be "Waiting for Godot" this spring on Broadway.

    The four actors will appear in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of the Samuel Beckett absurdist classic opening April 30 at Studio 54. Preview performances begin April 10.

    Lane, who will play Estragon, was last on Broadway in the David Mamet comedy "November." Irwin -- set for the role of Vladimir -- won a Tony Award for his performance as George in the 2005 revival of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" It was directed by Anthony Page who will also direct "Godot."

    Strathairn is Lucky and Goodman is Pozzo.
