By John Logan

January 24th - February 3rd, 2013

Winner of six 2010 Tony Awards including Best Play, Red is two character drama, based on the life and paintings of Mark Rothko, one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. The play follows Mark and his newly hired assistant, Ken, as they create murals for the prestigious Four Seasons Resort. Rothko's dilemma is a problem that faces every artist who wants to make a living, does one choose between poverty or the prospect of “selling out”? Red is the compelling story behind the meaning and compromise of art and examines Rothko’s struggles with his growing fame and fortune.
