It's hard to picture Bill Irwin sitting still.

"Bill combines a kind of remarkable elegance and grace with a clown's inherent sense of the absurd, all of which lie at the heart of Beckett's aesthetic," Perloff says. "He is an enormously expressive actor and can convey an emotion or idea with the smallest possible gesture -- it's a joy to watch.

"Bill seems to get the soul of Beckett's work, and the specificity -- nothing abstract or philosophical, always precise and full of need. That's why he has so much fun doing it."
