Art & Red in Repertory


Two plays in repertory, alternating daily – Art on even-numbered days; Red on odd-numbered days. Start times vary;

Westport Country Playhouse will open its 2016 Season with two Tony Award-winning plays staged in repertory, “Art” and “Red,” with each play alternating daily, from May 3 through May 29.

Mark Lamos directs two Tony Award-winning plays in conversation about art: making it, owning it, the anguish of creating it, and the ache of believing in it.

“Art” by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, and “Red” by John Logan, will be directed by Mark Lamos, Playhouse artistic director.


“A nonstop cross-fire of crackling language.”
– Newsweek –

He thinks it “priceless.” They have a slightly different point of view. Blistering honesty extracts a high price In Yasmina Reza’s intelligent and witty Tony Award-winning comedy.
