Dignity Players' current production of "Art" is a near-flawless effort - a must-see work for everyone who values friendship and realizes what art contributes to life. Yasmina Reza's 1998 Tony Award-winning play depicts how our perception of and reaction to art can test friendships and opinions, yet shows how we can learn from one another in confrontational situations. Dignity's production raises the standard of excellence for acting in local theater, as three actors portray characters who are confident, threatened and pacifistic.

Nearly two decades after Yasmina Reza's comedy "Art" debuted to international acclaim, the story about the nature of expression and friendship continues to fascinate audiences at Bowie Community Theatre's production at Bowie Playhouse in White Marsh Park. The play, now translated into more than 30 languages, opened in 1994 in Paris. It then became a success in London, winning the Laurence Olivier Award for best comedy before arriving on Broadway in 1998 to win a Tony Award. Set in Paris, the play reveals what happens to three longtime male friends when one buys an expensive, minimalist all-white painting by a trendy artist and invites his friends to see his investment.

With a production of Yasmina Reza's 1998 Tony Award-winning play Art, Bay Theatre Company marks its fourth success in as many shows. Reza's Art is a well-written comedy documenting contemporary life that is brilliantly presented by a gifted trio of professional actors under an excellent director. This thought-provoking comedy succeeds by evoking laughter while leading the audience to confront the value of contemporary art and its ability to alter long-standing friendships. Set in contemporary Paris, Art is about three male friends whose relationship is altered when one of them - dermatologist Serge - buys an expensive all-white painting by a trendy artist.

"Wild Reeds," which snuck into the Charles yesterday, is an unpretentious look at coming of age, as experienced -- or endured -- by four young Frenchmen and women. The year is a difficult one -- 1962, when the French colonization of Algeria was ending in a cloud of bitter violence and recriminations.These tensions are felt everywhere, even in a provincial town which is the setting of "Wild Reeds." Serge (Stephane Rideau) and Francois (Gael Morel) get along just fine, although Francois, the "sensitive one," realizes he is gay and is attracted to the husky Serge.

"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.

If it weren't so good, it would be glib fun to dismiss "Olivier Olivier" as a fractured fairy tale for recondite adult tastes; it's about a little boy on his way to grandmother's house with a food basket who is set upon by a wolf.Yet that symbolic overlay is never intrusive or self-conscious; it's part of the quiet, clammy art of the film which advances through horror one intimate detail after another. Directed by the legendary Agnieszka Holland ("Europa, Europa"), the film is an existential thriller as chilly and dislocating as anything by Chabrol or Sluizer or Hitchcock, other masters of the art."

It's like in the movie, when Forrest Gump just takes off running, all across America. He runs and runs along highways and byways. Then, one day, he stops. Just stops. Yeah, it's kind of like that. Four years ago, a Swiss long-distance runner named Serge Roetheli sold his home in the shadow of the Alps, laced up his Nikes and took off running. All across the world. He's going to run until early May, right before his 50th birthday, when he and his wife, Nicole, who rides beside him on a motorcycle hauling their belongings in a trailer, return to their hometown near the Matterhorn.

Ultra marathon runner Serge Arbona is calm, confident and drinking a lot of water today as he prepares to try to break the 24-hour world mileage record on a treadmill. Arbona, a lean, hard, 6-foot, 166-pound jack of all trades, plans to start his run to nowhere at noon Saturday on a brand-new treadmill at the Towson YMCA. He has to beat the record of 149.1 miles in 24 hours now held by a German named Karl Graf. "I'm confident now," he says. "I wasn't so sure about three or four weeks ago, [I was like]

On Oscar night this year, almost as memorable as Julia Roberts' dazzling smile and vintage Valentino gown, was a little-mentioned accessory -- her hair, swept back and sealed in a tight, gorgeous bun. It was a look that conveyed elegance and old-time glamour with a modern twist, a hairdo that Roberts had called on stylist Serge Normant to create in preparing for her big night. "There was something timeless about the dress," said Normant, a New York-based celebrity hairstylist who took just 40 minutes to coif Roberts the day of the ceremony.

"I'm starving. I haven't eaten in minutes," an obese character frantically announces in Nicky Silver's edgy comedy "The Food Chain."Silver writes about obsessions -- in this case, obsessions with food, family and love. It might be a bit of an exaggeration to say that his plays have become an obsession at AXIS Theatre. But "The Food Chain" -- AXIS' third Silver play in four years -- once again demonstrates director Brian Klaas' knack for capturing Silver's offbeat style.This is no simple achievement.

Even the title is minimalist. "Art" is a minimalist play about a minimalist painting. One set, three actors, 90 minutes. Like the white-on-white painting that is a bone of contention for its three characters, Yasmina Reza's 1998 Tony Award-winning play, currently at the Mechanic Theatre, is not an especially deep work. Nor is it really about art. Instead, it's about the friendship of three middle-aged men. And though they argue throughout most of the play, the chief argument they raise for this critic is whether men actually analyze their relationships with each other with such candor and in such excruciating detail.
