Quotes & Highlights
“Chic, short and wickedly, perceptively funny.” —London Evening Standard
Art can mean different things to different people, particularly in the arts colony of Laguna Beach. Of course, at Laguna Playhouse, _Art _means the internationally acclaimed hit play that runs at The Playhouse’s Moulton Theatre.
Written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, _Art _premiered in Paris in 1995 and went on to win numerous awards, including the 1996-1997 Laurence Olivier Award and the 1998 Tony Award. The Laguna Playhouse production is directed by Andrew Barnicle.
“I thought this play was perfect for Laguna Playhouse,” says Playhouse Artistic Director Andrew Barnicle. “The most obvious reason is that the play is about art and we’re in Laguna Beach. But it’s also about three men and male bonding, and what the fabric of male friendship is. It’s also a very funny play, and it’s very streamlined. It doesn’t present a lot of production obstacles. You just need to get three really good actors and let them fly.”
Barnicle did indeed get three good actors. Playing the role of Serge is Steve Vinovich. Marc is portrayed by John Herzog, while Yvan is played by Kyle Colerider-Krugh.
