Tennessee Repertory Theatre closes its 2001 season with the award winning play Art.

The celebrated comedy by Yasmina Reza tells the story of three friends whose lifelong relationship is put to the test when one of them spends $200,000 on a white painting. What ensues is a hilarious look at the meaning of old-fashioned friendship, as well as a comment or two about the nature of modern art.

Art has played to acclaim all over the world since it premiered in Paris in 1995. The play has won numerous awards, including the 1997 Oliver Award for "Best Comedy" and the 1998 Tony Award for "Best Play.
