Red, by John Logan was first published in 2009 and gained immediate popularity in 2010, winning 6 Tonys including Best Play. The understated drama peeks in on the late days of Mark Rothko, the famous contemporary abstract expressionist. Through conversations that occur between the painter and his apprentice, the audience gets the opportunity to consider the commercialization of contemporary art that resulted in the explosion of the art market in the second half of the 20th century. The play richly contrasts old and new art of this time and displays the unraveling of a great mind in the face of an increasingly consumer-oriented society. Show dates are May 4, 5, and 6 - welcome to audition and/or save the date!!
