How much would you pay for a white painting? This odd question sparks a firestorm in Yasmina Reza's Tony and Olivier Award winning comedic masterpiece about the lives of three old friends, the meaning of art and life, and the lengths we go a?" however, joyful, painful, or maddening a?" to protect those we care about. Marc's friend, Serge has bought a white painting. Simple. But to Marc, the painting is a joke and he expresses that fully. Serge doesn't take this reaction well, and confronts Marc on many things, among those, his lack of standards to judge art. And so, the battle begins. Another friend, the hapless Yvan, gets pulled into the quarrel, whose tepid attempts at peacemaking only add fuel to the fire, and a hilarious-yet-poignant battle ensues that threatens to destroy their friendship. 'ART' is an intelligent play about a simple piece of art becoming an external representation of inner values; the perfect marriage between Moliere and Woody Allen, a nonstop crossfire of crackling language, biting humor, and the fragile, feeling hearts that make us who we are. Called a?oeone of the best contemporary comedies, period!a??

Shit-faced Shakespeare's THE TAMING OF THE SHREW has come to Austin's Spider House Ballroom! The premise is simple: one cast member has several drinks before the show and, as a result, behaves poorly onstage. The other actors then have to cope with being heckled by a member of their own troupe. 'The Drunk' can then be made to drink even more during the performance by audience members or the show's master of ceremonies. So it's Shakespeare - but sloppier.
