THEATRE + COMEDY
July 14 - July 31, 2011
Generations, A Theatre Company presents Art, by Yasmina Reza. Translation by Christopher Hampton. Running July 15-31, Thursdays through Sundays, in Hamman Hall on the campus of Rice University.
Generation’s 2011 season features the U.S. regional premiere of the Tony-Award-winning musical Spring Awakening, in rotating rep with Yasmina Reza’s bold comedy Art. Both plays are regarded as groundbreaking works that take audiences to new places in new and exciting ways.
Art caused quite a sensation when it won the Tony for Best Play in 1998. Playwright Yasmina Reza (God of Carnage) asks not only “What is art?” but also “What is friendship?” and “What is marriage?” The answers will make you laugh and maybe even make you gasp.
Spring Awakening is directed by Generations Artistic Director George Brock, winner of multiple Tommy Tune Awards in his role as Theatre Teacher and Director at Episcopal High School in Houston. Phillip Lehl, co-founder of Stark Naked Theatre Company and one of Houston’s most versatile actors, directs Art.
