Prime Cut Productions and the Lyric Theatre present Red.

Viewed through the lens of his youthful new assistant, Ken, we witness Rothko – fiery, uncompromising, and furiously intelligent – at the pinnacle of his creativity, but struggling with the creation of a largescale commission intended for New York’s brand-new and very exclusive 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.  Based on real events, John Logan’s taut, visceral two-hander takes a compelling look at the ever- changing relationship between an artist and his creations.
