What a spin! Hub Theatre’s “Waiting For Waiting For Godot” takes the classic existential tragicomedy by Sam Beckett and tips it upside down – or maybe inside out – to generate some serious belly laughs. But don’t think because this play by Dave Hanson goes for comedy that it skips over its inspiration’s serious depth. It manages what humor does best (and what takes artistic craft and subtlety to achieve): slips insight in on the sly, and catches you with moments of profundity mid-laugh.
