Editorial Reviews

London Times
In October I called it a minor classic. Let's change that to classic comedy, period.
Newsweek
...a nonstop cross-fire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from the Sorbonne...Reza is a fiendishly clever writer...'ART' sounds like a marriage of Molière and Woody Allen...
Independent (London)
Anyone looking for a play that is funny, sophisticated, stylish, stimulating and moving should go to 'ART'.
NY Post
...wildly funny, naughtily provocative...
Mail (London)
That such a simple plot can throw up such profound and meaty ideas about the rules that dictate art and friendship is a real treat. Reza and Hampton have an acute ear for the idiocies, trivia and petty assaults that pepper the conversation between friends...The real pleasures come from Reza's creation of three beautifully defined, original characters...
Publishers Weekly
Accomplished actors star in this slick, highly entertaining full production of Reza’s award-winning play. Three old friends—Serge (Balaban), Marc (Cox), and Yvan (Perry)—find themselves at odds when Serge purchases an exorbitantly expensive all-white painting. Drudging up old resentments, critiquing the white canvas and their personal relationships, and finally speaking to each other with complete candor, the three friends battle it out while exploring the value and meaning of art and friendship. The entire cast delivers stellar performances, with Cox offering a particularly memorable turn as the petulant Marc in a smart, stylish audiobook that’s a quick listen to boot. (Nov.)
