If you’ve ever joined the hundreds of New York City spectators that flood the MoMA on Free Friday Nights, you know half the fun of modern art is watching the audience react. Tina Howe’s 1976 play Museum paints a meta-picture in bright, absurdist colors that details the chaos and conversation of 30-plus patrons during the final day of an art exhibition. Overseen by a nervous security guard, the show is a mishmash of plot lines, protagonists, and the evocations of conceptual work.

Through Saturday 3/1. $14, 8pm. UVA Arts Grounds, Ruth Caplin Theatre, 109 Culbreth Road. 924-3376.
