Red Summary

From the Donmar Warehouse in London - which brought you Frost/Nixon, Mary Stuart and this season's Hamlet with Jude Law - comes the thrilling new American play, Red. This critically acclaimed, 90-minute drama comes direct from a sold-out run in London, starring two-time Tony Award nominee Alfred Molina and breakthrough British star Eddie Redmayne.

Master American expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art. But when his young assistant gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, with ground-breaking 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.

Written by Academy Award nominee John Logan (The Aviator, Gladiator) and directed by Olivier winner and Tony Award nominee Michael Grandage (Frost/Nixon, Hamlet), Red is an award-winning production coming direct to Broadway, offering a moving and compelling account of an artist's struggle for integrity amidst fame and self-doubt.
