“Art” is a comedy about a friendship that is tested when one member of the barkada does something that upsets another member--in this case, buying a painting that he finds “pretentious.”
Originally written in French and produced by Sean Connery in Paris, “Art” has won numerous awards, including the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1997 Olivier Award for Best Comedy, and has been translated into, among others, English, Mandarin, Japanese, German and Spanish.
This production, staged by Little Boy Productions and Actor's Actors, Inc., features a new translation by Lito Abaño that captures all the humor of the original while adapting its language into an easy, colloquial and thoroughly contemporary Filipino.
