My name is Jennifer Nasta Zefutie. I am a Cranbury resident and Co-Producing Artistic Director of Pegasus Theatre Project―the professional, resident theatre company of the West Windsor Arts Council. Our next production is a witty, sophisticated comedy that makes for a great evening out close to home. In addition to the production, we also have some special events planned to complement the show. Details for the production are below. I look forward to seeing some of you there!
WINNER of the 1998 Drama Desk Award and Tony Award for Best Play!
“A remarkably wise, witty and intelligent comedy . . . has touched a universal nerve.” ―The Times
“Chic, short, and wickedly, perceptively funny, it's the perfect...play.” ―Nick Curtis, Evening Standard
“It's a nonstop cross-fire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from the Sorbonne. Art takes that yawny old bore, the play of ideas, and jolts it to life.” ―Jack Kroll, Newsweek
Pegasus Theatre Project presents Yasmina Reza’s award-winning comedy, ‘ART’, March 31-April 9, 2017, at the West Windsor Arts Center. ‘ART’ is a timeless comedy about three friends whose friendship is thrown into chaos when one of them buys a modern painting that another considers a joke, while the third is caught in the middle trying to keep the peace. By exploring questions about what is art and what one’s taste in art says about the person, the friends come to address deeper issues that have been challenging their relationship. Will they be able to resolve their differences, or have they grown too far apart?
