Theatre Arlington presents Tony Award-winning play, Red by John Logan
“I am here to make you think. . . . I am not here to make pretty pictures!”
Arlington, TX, March 2018:
Theatre Arlington is stepping outside the box this spring and asking the question, “What do you see?” in Red by John Logan. Winner of six Tony Awards in 2010, including Best Play, Red goes inside the studio of famed Abstract-Expressionist artist Mark Rothko at the height of his career in 1958. Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art at the time, but is struggling with his young, idealistic assistant, Ken, and his own inner demons. Ken’s answers to the initial question result in more thought-provoking and probing questions, shedding light on the meaning of art, integrity and commercialism. The two artists explosively challenge each other, revealing their own fears, philosophies, visions and secrets.
Adam Adolfo, who last directed the hugely successful, Legally Blonde-The Musical at Theatre Arlington, returns to direct this compelling portrait of an artist and his student, is hoping to open up the mind of the audience. About the play, Adolfo says “I’m concerned that people are going to look at a description of the play and think, ‘I’m going to watch paint dry for 90 minutes.’ But really, it is about the creation of art and the idea of how people create art. You will be moved. These characters paint one another’s souls.”
Meticulously directed by Adam Adolfo, Red stars Robert W L Krecklow as artist Mark Rothko and Matthew Holmes as his protégé, Ken.
Production team members also include Lexi Lehberg (Stage Manager) Käte Myers (Scenic Design), Bill Eickenloff (Sound Designer), Kyle Harris (Lighting Designer), Cathy Pritchett (Properties Designer) and Nathan Scott (Costume Designer).
Red opens on Friday, March 30th at 8:00pm. Opening Night will include a post-show reception with the cast and crew, sponsored by Simply Divune Catering with dessert provided by Cooper Street Bakery.
