Famous Friends
It’s a relatively simple premise. A man buys a very expensive, very white painting. His two friends “react.” But Yasmina Reza’s 1994 play Art finds enough juicy comedy in this story to charm actors and audiences alike. For most of its nearly 20-year history, A-list actors have lined up for a role. It was a smash hit in Paris, and since its English version (by Christopher Hampton) opened in London in 1996 and New York in 1998, it has featured the likes of Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay, Alan Alda and Joe Morton. It’s no surprise to see three of the area’s best actors on the marquee for Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s season-opening production: Brian Mani, Tom Klubertanz and MCT’s producing artistic director, C. Michael Wright.
