About the play:
It's 1958, and artist Mark Rothko has been offered the biggest commission in modern art: creating a series of paintings to hang in The Four Seasons restaurant in New York City. Now, he must to live up to the challenge as he and his young assistant work feverishly in his Lower East Side studio to complete the task. As the master and his student struggle to define their artistic beliefs, the two men go head-to-head on the purpose of art and the relationship between the artist and his creation. The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play, Red is a riveting character study that dares to expose the ambition and vulnerability necessary for a great artist to thrive.
