9781580815833: Art (Library Edition Audio CDs)

Tony Award winner for Best Play and Olivier Award winner for Best Comedy. How much would you pay for a painting with nothing on it? Would it be art? Marc's best friend Serge has just bought a very expensive and very white - painting. To Marc, the painting is a joke, and as battle lines are drawn, old friends use it to settle scores. With friendships hanging in the balance, the question becomes: how much is a painting worth? A nonstop cross-fire of crackling language (and) serious issues of life and art...sounds like a marriage of Moliere and Woody Allen, writes Newsweek.

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Bob Balaban, Brian Cox and Jeff Perry.

Review:

How would you feel about your best friend if she 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. When an art lover buys what is in essence a pure white painting for a horse-choking sum, his best friend goes ballistic. Yet a third friend gets squeezed in the middle. Questions about the meaning of strange modern art and strange modern friendships--and how they're sometimes not all that different--fly thick in the limelight.

From the Inside Flap:

How much would you pay for a painting with nothing on it? Would it be "art"? Marc's best friend Serge has just bought a very expensive and very white painting. To Marc, it is a joke, and as battle lines are drawn, old friends use the painting to settle scores. With friendships hanging in the balance, the question becomes: how much is a work of "art" worth? A Tony Award winner for Best Play and Oliver Award winner for Best Comedy.
