    Winner of a Tony Award, this play explores the true meaning of art, which gets the form of a solid white painting. This work of art is also used to investigate the meaning of the friendship between the man who has bought the painting and his two friends who go to see it.

    "Art was a very good play, but it I wouldn't call this the best simply because it's not as much of a universal message as others. The cast of Art is what really helped to make this unique, starring exceptional talent that would later gain greater fame. This is a good play, but I'd put it just below the best."

    "Tom Stoppard is pretty much one of the great inheritors of the real tradition of the literary play from Beckett, although he is much more accessible. And yet he goes deep, as in this play, which touches on so many things that it's rather stunning. It's certainly among the best plays written in the last 20 years. I read it on the bus. You should find time, too!"
