Show poster for Red

Winner of six 2010 Tony Awards including Best Play, Red is a searing portrait of an artist's ambition and vulnerability. After he lands the biggest commission in the history of modern art, abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko begins work on a series of large murals with the help of a new young assistant. What takes place between the two men is a master class on the methods and purpose of art and the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations.

Nominated for FIVE 2012 Elliot Norton Awards: Outstanding Actor (Thomas Derrah); Outstanding Actor (Karl Baker Olson); Outstanding Design Team; Outstanding Director; and Outstanding Production of a Play.

Nominated for THREE 2013 Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) Awards: Best Actor (Thomas Derrah), Best Director, and Best Production.

Winner of TWO 2012 Elliot Norton Awards: Outstanding Actor (Thomas Derrah) and Outstanding Production.
