See ART in the original French, then in Translation
Sponsored by Tacoma Arts Live (formerly the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts) Theater on the Square will open ART by Yasmina Reza, using Christopher Hampton’s English translation. The English version will open exactly one week after Rue du Hazard’s French production opens in Kirkland. It makes for a great experience for theatre goers to see the show in the original French and then in translation.
This Tony-award-winning comedy involves three best friends and one painting. Lifelong friends Yvan, Serge, and Marc find their relationship turned upside down, when one of them purchases a pure white paining, for an enormous sum of money. They find themselves at odds over what constitutes art and delve into its deeper influence on their lives.
This theater production of “Art” will star local actors Eric Clausell, David Fischer, and Joshua Knudson. This is the second play presented by Tacoma Arts Live’s newly launched professional regional theater.
