Review: "It is astounding that there is not a single moment that falls flat in the entire 100-minute run." B-town Blog LINK.

Review: "It’s not exactly a light play, and it’ll surely make you think, but this production is so engaging and well performed, you’ll be happy to have been a part of it." The Sound on Stage LINK.


Winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play, Red takes us into the mind of abstract expressionist Mark Rothko, for whom paintings are “pulsating” life forces and art is intended to stop the heart. Raw and provocative, but with snippets of humor, Red chronicles the tormented painter’s two-year struggle to complete a lucrative set of murals for Manhattan’s exclusive Four Seasons restaurant, and his fraught relationship with a seemingly naïve young assistant, who must choose between appeasing his mentor—and changing the course of art history.

Run Time: 100 minutes, there is no intermission.

Contains some adult language.
