'ART' by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
This production is professionally recorded and streamed directly
to your home.
How much would you pay for an all-white painting? Would the price tag make it art?
When Serge spends a fortune on a seemingly blank canvas, he and his friends clash over whether it was worth it, and what makes art anyway. This Tony-award winning comedy is Yasmina Reza’s funny, sophisticated, and moving story about what we value—and whether it’s beautiful.
Winner of the 1998 Tony for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
This performance is available for streaming on October 23, 24, and 25. You can watch the show at your convenience anytime on those dates. The performance won’t be available on other dates, so don’t miss it!

Tickets are $12 for children and students, $15 for seniors over the age of 55, and $17 for adults. There is also a $25 “Supporter” ticket for those who would like to support the work of City Circle. Selecting the right ticket is on the “honor system”—thank you for choosing the correct ticket price, it makes City Circle possible.
