Dianne Wiest is reprising her role in Samuel Beckett’s “Happy Days” after starring in the play as Winnie at Theater for a New Audience last year. No, not on Broadway — in Madison Square Park. The Oscar-winning actress is performing selections from Beckett’s 1961 play at noon daily through Friday.
She’s easy to spot: She’s the one dressed as a boulder. But unlike some other creatively dressed park denizens, Ms. Wiest’s geological couture is art, not fashion. Arlene Shechet, the ceramic artist, crafted the costume as a part of her ongoing installation in the park, “Full Steam Ahead,” on view until April 28.
