An Actor’s Center of Asheville production in partnership with Asheville Community
Theatre at 35Below presents ART by Yasmina Reza, running September 4th—September 20th, 2015 in Asheville, NC.
This play is about three men, one painting, and $50,000, and a winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play, the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
"…wildly funny, naughtily provocative…" —NY Post.
"…a nonstop crossfire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from the Sorbonne…Reza is a fiendishly clever writer…'ART' sounds like a marriage of Molière and Woody Allen…" —Newsweek.
"Anyone looking for a play that is funny, sophisticated, stylish, stimulating and moving should go to 'ART'." —Independent (London).
"That such a simple plot can throw up such profound and meaty ideas about the rules that dictate art and friendship is a real treat. Reza and Hampton have an acute ear for the idiocies, trivia and petty assaults that pepper the conversation between friends…The real pleasures come from Reza's creation of three beautifully defined, original characters…" —The Mail (London).
"In October I called it a minor classic. Let's change that to classic comedy, period." —London Times.
ART will feature local talents, Kevin Patrick Murphy, Dan Clancy, and Robert Dale Walker.
