In his strongest Broadway performance to date, the dauntless Mr. Molina embraces the artist's egotism unconditionally, and he makes us feel the necessity of an overweening, humorless vanity and seriousness.

Ben Brantley

Why See Red?

Master American expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery.

But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.

Raw and provocative, with groundbreaking performances, Red is a searing portrait of an artist's ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

Direct from a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse in London comes the thrilling new American play, Red. This award-winning, 90-minute drama stars two-time Tony Award® nominee Alfred Molina and breakthrough British star Eddie Redmayne.

Written by Academy Award® nominee John Logan (The Aviator, Gladiator) and directed by Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Michael Grandage (Frost/Nixon, Hamlet), Red is the Donmar’s latest critically-acclaimed production to arrive on Broadway, following the success of Frost/Nixon, Mary Stuart, and this season’s Hamlet with Jude Law.Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

A moving and compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing.
