About RED by John Logan

Intense, exciting, and the winner of seven Tony Awards, RED is a gripping bio-drama that explores the life of painter Mark Rothko and his relationship with his ambitious young assistant. 

Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, RED is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

RED will be produced at Brush & Barrel, Coralville’s social painting and crafting studio. Gather friends and join us for a soda, glass of wine, beer, or seltzer before the show and then sit back and be prepared to have your views on art challenged with this thought-provoking play!
