Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and, in ART, three long-time friends come to laughs and blows over the value of an expensive painting. By the author of GOD OF CARNAGE, ART achieved spectacular success in Paris and London, where it was the recipient of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy, before being produced on Broadway in 1998 and winning the 1999 Tony Award for Best Play. Since that time, it has been performed in more than 20 languages around the world. According to Mr. Brancato who will stage the production,
ART is a wickedly witty portrait of modern art that also takes a funny and penetrating look at male friendship. Penguin s limited enga! gement of ART runs through Sunday, June 9 in historic Stony Point (Rockland County), New York. Official opening is Sunday, May 19 at 2:00 p.m.
The cast under Mr. Brancato s direction includes: Josh Powell (as Serge), Brian Sgambati (as Marc), and Jonathan Spivey (as Yvan).
