Red

Written by John Logan
Directed by David De Vries

 

Now extended through 3/11!

Winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play

Pontifical, obsessive, vain, arrogant and brilliant, modernist painter Mark Rothko turned the art world on its head with his revolutionary abstract expressionist studies in color, shape and texture. John Logan’s Red arrives in Atlanta to paint a raw and provocative portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability in this electrifying play.

Starring Tom Key and Jimi Kocina

 

"Key's vivid style of acting suits the role... you can't help being mesmerized."
- Wendell Brock, The Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Rothko play has audiences seeing Red, in a good way."
- Curt Holman, Creative Loafing

"Red is a thoughtful and fascinating portrait."
- Andrew Alexander, ArtsCriticATL
