A country road. Tree. Evening. That's the description Samuel Beckett gives to the setting of his play “Waiting for Godot.” After Hurricane Katrina, that's what artist Paul Chan saw in New Orleans. So he put on the play, outside, for free, for the city. On Monday he'll be at Redcat to talk about that production. KPCC's Molly Peterson lived in New Orleans and saw it. She called Paul Chan for a preview of his talk.
