Master abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of art: a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant Ken in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.


Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work in a unique setting.

“Intense and exciting! A portrait of a brilliant mind that captures the dynamic relationship

between an artist and his creations!” -The New York Times


“Smart, eloquent entertainment! It deftly conjures what most plays about artists don’t: the

  exhilaration of the act!” -The New Yorker


“An electrifying play of ideas: the artist’s howls are pure music!” -Variety


RED won the Tony and Olivier Awards for Best Play of the Season
