Previews and Openings

Fragments’ (opens on Sunday) C.I.C.T./Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord returns to New York with this acclaimed production from 2011: a setting of five short pieces by Samuel Beckett, directed with becoming simplicity by Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne, that showcase the writer’s peerless gift for theatrical economy, as well as the glinting comic light that shines from much of his work (1:00). Baryshnikov Arts Center, 450 West 37th Street, Clinton, (866) 811-4111, (Charles Isherwood)
