John Logan's Red, 2010 Tony Award winner for Best Play, plays its final performance at Broadway's John Golden Theatre.
Red is set in 1958 as New York artist Mark Rothko (Alfred 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 (Eddie 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.
