I heard the actors in Red on Broadway talk about this play on the Leonard Lopate show on WNYC, but I was unable to get into the city to see it. Now George Street Playhouse is bringing it to NJ in January. Once again, they are pairing reading the book with seeing the play. This would be a good choice for your Book Group:

Read. Talk. See.

By Academy Award nominee John Logan
Directed by Anders Cato

In 1958, abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko had just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art—a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that followed, Rothko worked feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when the assistant gains the confidence to challenge the master, Rothko must face the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.

A huge hit both in London and on Broadway, this provocative play won six Tony Awards, including Best Play.
