Raw and electrifying, RED, John Logan’s sizzling play ignites the worlds of art and commerce.
Iconoclastic Mark Rothko, the misanthropic abstract-expressionist painter, confronts his decision to accept a lucrative commercial commission. Extolling the virtues of his art as “expressing the big emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, and doom,” Rothko drills his new assistant about the dangers of selling out and as they work together, the roles of student and teacher reverse, forcing Rothko to face his own demons about reality and his ultimate place in the pantheon of great artists.
Starring Broadway Leading Man, Kevin McGuire, as Mark Rothko
Winner of Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and 6 Tony Awards®, including Best Play 2010.
