Yasmina Reza garnered international acclaim with her play “Art” for which she received the 1998 Lawrence Olivier Award for best comedy and the 1998 Tony Award for best play. How would you feel about your best friend if he suddenly did something so colossally stupid, it made you doubt the very basis of the friendship? It happens in Yasmina Reza’s monster international hit, “Art.” “Art” is a hilarious comedy about an art lover, who buys what is in essence a pure white painting for a horse-choking sum. In turn, his best friend goes ballistic and a third friend gets squeezed in the middle. This knee slapping comedy poses questions about the meaning of strange modern art and strange modern friendships — and how they’re sometimes not all that different.
