By Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton
June 25 – July 12
One white painting, three colorful opinions about what makes art, well, art. Serge (Don Walker), indulging his penchant for modern art, has purchased a large, expensive, completely white painting. His longtime friend Marc (Gary Marachek) is horrified, which causes considerable strain in their relationship. Yvan (Larry Alexander), caught in the middle, tries to please and mollify both of them. Lines are drawn and they square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendship … and possibly that piece of “art.” Winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Directed by Julian Olf.
“… a nonstop cross-fire of crackling language … Reza is a fiendishly clever writer … ‘ART’ sounds like a marriage of Molière and Woody Allen …” ~Newsweek
