`Art' paints complex picture

Comedic `Art' paints complexity

Theater review

May 28, 2008|By Karen Houppert | Karen Houppert,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

"Why do we see each other if we hate each other?" bemoans one of the characters in Yasmina Reza's comedy Art, playing at Everyman Theatre. It is a question that resounds in this witty and sophisticated piece.

Art is deceptively simple: A middle-aged divorc?, Serge (Karl Kippola) has purchased a new painting. It is a pale minimalist work - a white 4-by-5 canvas with a few white brushstrokes. White on white.

If you go Art runs through June 29 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St. Showtimes vary. Tickets are $16-$35. Call 410-752-2208 or go to everymantheatre.org.
