“I am not here to make pretty pictures.”
-Mark Rothko, Red
This winner of the Drama Desk Award and Tony for best play is set in 1958. Abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko had just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art. With the help of his assistant, Rothko frantically struggles against his insecurities while trying to create a definitive and moving body of work.
Described as electrifying and captivating, this play investigates the conflicts inherent in the tension between a great artist’s desire to be understood and respected.
