Awful. Terrible acting. Boring. Snoozefest.

Art was well-performed and lots of fun. Our seats were fantastic (third row, center) and the price was great. It was an overall wonderful experience.

Witty comedy in a beautiful, historical playhouse in downtown San Bernardino.

Description

A simple white canvas. A 200,000 francs price tag. The real cost? Decades-long friendships. Enter the world of Yasmina Reza’s Art, where Serge’s purchase of an expensive, abstract painting raises questions about the nature of art and friendship. Set in Paris, the story revolves around three friends who find their previously solid friendship on shaky ground when Serge invests in a new painting. The purchase reveals unsettling secret opinions and conflicting world-views. As their arguments shift from the theoretical to the personal, this Tony Award®-winning comedy examines the pressures friends place on each other – and how different values can transform relationships. From the author of Broadway’s hit play God of Carnage.
