Arts and Leisure

Anne G. Wilder Theater

Written by Steve Tesich
Directed by Joanne Akalaitis

"Most of my major accomplishments in life are the things I've stopped doing." Meet Alex Chaney, all powerful theater critic at the heart of Steve Teisich's hilarious and disturbing ARTS AND LEISURE. "Oh, I know, we had our little spats as most couples do, but the only substantive issue which stood in the way of our happiness can be summed up in two words: Artistic Differences." Alex's objectivity is impenetrable, his power over our opinions staggering. Directed with scathing wit by JoAnne Akalaitis, ARTS AND LEISURE is funny, frightening, and horrifying in its persuasivness.
