Amarillo Little Theatre presents “Art” from April 7-16. It was the winner of the 1998 Tony Award for “Best Play.”
How much would you pay for a white painting? Would it matter who the painter was? Would it be art?
The comedy, which raises questions about art and friendship, concerns three long-time friends, Serge, Marc, and Yvan. Serge, indulging his penchant for modern art, buys a large, expensive, completely white painting. Marc is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes “art”. Yvan, caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify both of them.
This hilarious play was the very first production staged at the ALT Adventure Space in August of 2001. It starred Bobby Schaffer, Brad McBride and Allen Shankles.
Allen will pay homage to this great show as he steps out of the lights and directs this great comedy.
