Penguin Rep Theatre, the award-winning professional Equity theatre under the leadership of founding artistic director Joe Brancato and executive director Andrew M. Horn, opens its 42nd season Friday, May 17th with a revival of Art, Yasmina Reza’s international hit play, 20 years after its successful Broadway run.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and, in Art, three long-time friends come to laughs — and blows — over the value of an expensive painting.
Penguin’s limited engagement of Art runs through Sunday, June 9 in historic Stony Point (Rockland County), New York. Official opening is Sunday, May 19 at 2:00 p.m.
