 >Why is Godot not performed so much in USA?

Here's my swing at it: amateur drama might have a problem with putting
on a play that has no major female roles, given the demographics of U.S.
drama clubs.

Bill Arnold writes about the "Old World" and its "post-WWII fascination
with existentialism as an answer to 'Who am I, why am I here?'", before
contrasting that with America, "a God-fearing nation of willful doers
without a passive bone in our bodies."

I don't know about "God-fearing"... but surely one of the cornerstones
of existentialism, in whatever form, is its characterisation of human
agents as "willful doers"...?
