Winner of six 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Play, Red sends you crashing into the vivid and visceral mind of an artistic genius - abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. Set against the changing landscape of the early 1960s, the celebrated artist has just landed his biggest commission: a series of massive murals for New York's posh Four Seasons Restaurant. In the midst of his creation, Rothko's young, new assistant questions his artistic integrity, forcing the famed artist to confront the possibility that his crowning achievement could be his ultimate downfall. A searing portrait of an artist's determination and vulnerability, Red is a stirring and captivating story of one of the most celebrated artists in modern times.
