THEATRE NOW Presents Yasmina Reza's ART at Pearl District Galleries, Now thru 10/21
THEATRE NOW presents ART by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, starring Daniel Benzali, Sam A. Mowry and Jonah Weston at art galleries throughout Portland's Pearl District, tonight, Sept 14-Oct 21, 2012.
Serge has bought a modern painting for an enormous sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts to placate both sides. If your friendship is based on a tacit mutual agreement, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are, and are you the same person with different people?
Reza's dazzling comedy received the Moliere Award for best play, best production and best author. Art also won the evening standard award for Best Comedy and received its British premiere at Wyndham's Theatre, London, in October 1996. ART not only brings to the stage a topical debate, it makes it invigorating, touching and finally disturbing.
Tickets are $20.00 for Adults, $15.00 for Students and Senior Citizens and $12.00 for groups of ten or more and are available at the door and online at www.boxofficetickets.com/theatrenow. For more information, go to www.theatrenow.net.
