Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The milieu is the art world, and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies takes us on a rocky backward and forward journey through the career, values, and loves of a now-famous painter. It’s about the art scene, the loss of love, and the price of assimilation – both ethnic and intellectual – in an America where authenticity often has little to do with an artist’s, or anyone’s rise to the top. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From AudioFile

This Obie Award-winning play is one of the best entries in L.A. Theatre Works' impressive catalog. A 30-something successful artist (Adam Arkin) goes to England for his first foreign exhibition. He arranges to stay over with a former lover (Anna Gunn). The visit triggers thoughts about art vs. commerce, passion vs. compromise, keeping one's way vs. losing one's way in life. The cast (also with Jordan Baker and Randy Ogelsby) is superb, but Gunn stands out. She is completely convincing both in flashback scenes as a passionate young woman, humbled by being the muse for this promising artist, and in present-day scenes as a married exile in England coping with resentment and emotional erosion. Every line she delivers is richly shaded in a performance that captures the warmth and honesty of real life. G.H.
