The Merrick Theatre, 2222 Hewlett Ave, Merrick, is holding auditions for their upcoming production of “ A R T”.
Winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Art, by Yasmina Reza, is the story of three friends, Serge, Marc and Ivan. Serge has just bought a very expensive painting. To Marc, the painting is a joke. Ivan allows himself to be pulled into the disagreement. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures.
The play is translated from the French and takes place in Paris. Looking to cast actors who can portray a European sensibility and who can speak with a slight but proper English accent.
