THE STORY
   
 "What do you see?" & "What is art - and who gets to decide?"

Famed abstract impressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his new assistant, Ken, these loaded questions. It's 1958 New York, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art - a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio "until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor's. When Ken grows the confidence to challenge his mentor, 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. 
 

Winner of six Tony Awards in 2010, this sizzling 90-minute drama makes us all question is there true art in the face of searing ambition?
Or does an artist 'sell out' for commercial success?

     

  
ROLES AVAILABLE

 

 Roles Available: 2 Men
 

Mark Rothko: 
American Abstract expressionist painter has already achieved much critical acclaim at this point in his career. The New York Times described Rothko as “a man of fierce opinions and didactic conversation,” his mercurial, moody, controlling, and riddled with angst as he attempts to create art of meaning and importance. Rothko is predisposed to bouts of depression, which are fueled by his incessant need to ask deep questions about the meaning and purpose of art and how it reflects the meaning and purpose (or lack thereof) of life. He is rarely an easy man to work with, and treats his apprentice more like a lackey than a partner – but his belief in and passion for art comes through to his apprentice, in spite of anything Rothko does to prevent it. Rothko is opinionated, driven, and extremely set in his ways. Yet, beneath his tough exterior and jaded outlook on life and art, lies the heart and vulnerability of a deeply feeling man of immense emptiness and passionate longing. (Age 40-65)

Ken: 
Rothko’s new assistant, to play 20s, an aspiring painter, Ken is awestruck to be working alongside this master, but also has new ideas about the next generation of art-making and how it should be different from the last. He is terribly nervous around his rather surly boss, but he eventually finds his quiet way to express his ever-developing, thoughtful opinions to this older master. He is quiet by nature, but eventually finds a voice for himself and a way to express his criticisms of the art and artists who have come before him, and his enthusiasm for the many years of art to come. (Age 18-28)

 
Actors will receive a $150 stipend at the final performance following strike.
