John Logan's Red, starring Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne, begins performances at Broadway's Golden Theatre.
Red is set in 1958 as New York artist Mark Rothko (Molina) has received 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 his young assistant, Ken (Redmayne) and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Rothko faces his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. Red is a theatrical account of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing.
The production is directed by Michael Grandage.
