LITTLE Boy Productions presents Red, the 2010 Tony Award winner for best play written by American writer John Logan about the famous abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko. The show will be on Sunday, May 5, 1 p.m. at the Cap Art Center.
Red won almost every major award in London when it premiered in 2009 and went on to do the same on Broadway the following year. This brilliant play by Logan (The Last Samurai, Gladiator, Any Given Sunday) speculates about one of the most enigmatic incidents in the 20th Century art world.
In 1958, the abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko was commissioned, for an astounding sum, to paint a series of murals for the cutting edge Seagram Building on Park Ave.
Playing Rothko is theater veteran Bart Guingona who also directs. He is matched line for line by a young veteran, also a director, Joaquin Valdes playing the fictional assistant Ken. For details and tickets, you may call 316-2987. (PR)
