"Art" begins when one of three long-time friends spends 200,000 euros on what is essentially a white canvas. His buddies, dumbfounded, struggle to understand the purchase and maintain their relationship. As the play progresses, the idea of art becomes a metaphor for their crumbling friendship. This peek into individual opinions and values surrounding art serves to pose the most basic questions about the role of friendship in our lives. 



 

Into the Woods

Into the Woods
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Tracy Lyn Thomas 
In this classic Stephen Sondheim musical, he weaves together traditional fairy tales to tell the story of a husband and wife who are searching for life, “Happily Ever After.” Throughout the performance they endure the “fe fi fo fum” of a giant, a big bad wolf, and Rapunzel’s tower, all in an effort to break a witch’s curse. What they don’t realize is that happily ever after really only happens in fairy tales. In “real” life you may be able to defeat the giant but where to you put the body? Come find out in this Tony Award winning musical that only Sondheim could write.
