French playwright Yasmina Reza’s comic masterpiece about three middle aged men, long-time friends, whose seemingly inseparable bond is torn when one of them decides suddenly to purchase an abstract painting, a completely white canvas.  Since it premiered in France in 1994, Art has been translated into numerous languages and has won many awards for best comedy, including the Olivier Award for its premiere production in London (starring  Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay and Ken Stott) and the Tony Award for its Broadway premiere (starring Alan Alda, Alfred Molina and Victor Garber).
