Professor of Theatre Rich Brown has been away from Western Washington University Spring quarter of 2021 on professional leave. As part of his activity, he's performing in Yasmina Reza's award-winning play "Art" at the Oregon Contemporary Theatre, a professional theatre in Eugene, Oregon.
In addition to having a 25% capacity live audience (about 40 patrons), Oregon Contemporary Theatre will be streaming the performances of "Art."  The stream is comprised of a combination of live performance and filmed monologues edited together. The show will be available for on-demand streaming between June 7 and 12.


If you’ve had enough Netflix/Hulu, tune in to Rich Brown in "Art."

"Art" is a dark comedy about three adult men who have been dear friends for fifteen years, until one of them buys an all-white painting for $200,000. The extravagant purchase strains the friendship, calling into question their diverging values - and incomes. Originally premiered in the 1990s, the current experience with COVID has exposed how tenuous many relationships can be, even when we think they are solid - an attestation to the play's lasting relevance.
