Mark Taper Forum
About the Show:
PASSION. RAGE. BLOOD. What do you see? Behold the fury of Mark Rothko, celebrated bad boy of the art world, as powerful pigments and opinions splatter the canvases of his newly commissioned works for New York’s luxury restaurant, The Four Seasons. Paint collides with canvas live on stage, as masterpieces are born and torn down in a visceral experience that spills off the stage and forever changes the way you see red.
Alfred Molina (Art and The Cherry Orchard) reprises his critically acclaimed London and Tony Award® nominated Broadway role to rage against the art world – and occasionally his assistant, performed by Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) – in a masterful and perspective-changing exploration into the soul of an artist.
RED won the major 2010 Tony Awards® for Director Michael Grandage, and for Best Play to John Logan (three-time Academy Award-nominee for Hugo, Gladiator and The Aviator).
