IN A LIMITED RUN—Reservations Strongly Encouraged

Mile Square Theatre (MST) presents a one-of-a-kind production of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning comedy “Art” to support MST's NextStage Capital Campaign to renovate its theatre.

What is art? What does it mean to be a friend? What does it mean to be a friend when your friends have terrible taste in art?

Chris O'Connor (MST Artistic Director, Scapin), Charlie Kevin (MST Associate Artist, Moss in Merrimack Rep’s Glengarry Glen Ross), and Matthew Lawler (MST Associate Artistic Director, currently shooting God’s Pocket with Philip Seymour Hoffman)—three veteran actors and long-time friends—explore these questions in MST's intimate production of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning comedy Art.

Rather than being played in a traditional theater, Mile Square Theatre's production of Art will be performed in the intimacy of an art gallery (1200 Washington) and a lounge (Kolo Klub). These intimate venues are designed to give the audience a unique experience and draw them more personally into the story.

WHEN: July 24, 25, and 27, 8 PM
WHERE: 1200 Washington Gallery in Hoboken, NJ.

WHEN: July 29 and 30, 8 PM
WHERE:
Kolo Klub in Hoboken, NJ.

TICKETS: Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online @ milesquaretheatre.org

Art is supported by Mason Family Civic League and Accordia Realty Ventures.

Art is being produced to Support the MST NextStage Capital Campaign! The Mason Family Civic League has offered a $10,000 challenge grant. For every dollar, raised, the MFCL will donate a dollar. Help us renovate our theatre!
