REMINDER: It’s finalé weekend for BAT Theatre’s Red, a Tony-Award winning play directed by Beau Prichard, which has its last performance this Sunday, May 5, 2024.

Red is a Tony-award winning play by John Logan that chronicles the struggle of abstract artist Mark Rothko to complete a set of commissioned murals for Manhattan’s exclusive Four Seasons restaurant.

The play is comprised of a set of conversations between Rothko (Scott C. Brown) and his young studio assistant Ken (Seamus C. Smith) about Art – what it is and our relationship to it, both as individuals and as a society. 

As our reviewer Alia Sinclair wrote:

“The performances of Brown and Smith are phenomenal. In a show that is comprised entirely of conversations between the two actors, it is astounding that there is not a single moment that falls flat in the entire 100-minute run.”
