Three best friends. One painting.

Talk-back with Director and Actors on May 19 following the 3:00 p.m. show.
Imagine making a purchase that brings 20 years of friendship to a comical boiling point and fist fight. Art, by Yasmina Reza, was a sensational hit in London and New York when it premiered, running more than 600 performances on Broadway and winning the Tony for Best Play. A breathtakingly funny, brilliantly satiric look at status, power, and the dynamics of friendship, including the difficulty of being truly honest, even between people who love each other. All is well in the lifelong friendship until one of the trio buys an expensive painting setting everything out of balance!

This is a local, professional theater production.
