This production by Texas Repertory Theatre features the excellent trio of Joshua Estrada, Tom Long and Rob de los Reyes. The three are best friends who battle over the fourth main character, an ungainly, white-on-white abstract painting one of the men has bought for a ridiculous amount of money, as a sign, he hopes, of his sophistication and good taste. To his surprise, his two friends have rather dubious reactions to the purchase.
The comedy beguiles, recalling the best of Burns and Allen, Jacques Tati and Neil Simon. Eighty minutes fly by, and when it’s over you realize you’ve been smiling all the while. Now, that’s art. 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Through May 27. 14243 Stuebner Airline. For information, visit www.texreptheatre.org.
