RED features artist Mark Rothko at the height of his career. Viewed through the lens of his youthful new assistant, Ken, we witness Rothko at the pinnacle of his creativity, but struggling through the creation of a series of large paintings, commissioned to feature in New Yorks brand-new Four Seasons Restaurant. As Ken and Rothko paint, they challenge each other to ask big questions about art: what it takes to create it and what its role should be in the world. Set in the 1950s and based on real events, Red takes a compelling look at the ever-changing relationship between an artist and his creations.
RED opens Friday, August 13 with performances Fri. and Sat. nights at 8pm and Sun. at 2pm through August 21. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 for students & seniors, available at the box office or online at www.BrookfieldTheatre.org. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, August 12 at 8pm.
