How will they remember you? Mark Rothko, the revolutionary twentieth century abstract expressionist, receives the art world’s largest commission: to create a series of murals for The Four Seasons restaurant in the new Seagram building on Park Avenue. Under the watchful gaze of a threatening new generation of artists, Rothko labors to create an iconic work that will stand as a monument to his illustrious career, while doubts and fears of his own relevancy threaten to tear him apart. Red won the 2010 Drama League, Drama Desk and Tony Awards for best play and now receives its Austin premiere.

In the news

"Intense and exciting... a portrait of an angry and brilliant mind that asks you to feel the shape and texture of thoughts... Red captures the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations."
-New York Times
"John Logan sends American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko into battle with his demons in this electrifying play of ideas, and the artist's howls are pure music... Rothko is one old lion that will keep roaring until he draws his last breath."
"A totally convincing portrait of the artist as a working visionary."       -Guardian (UK)
