Not a Review: Red

The play Red - which hides upstairs in the Dallas Theater Center's rehearsal hall - is probably my favorite there in a long time.  This award-winning two-hander is based on the relationship between abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko and a young painter who takes the job of his assistant.


A red canvas by Rothko - believed fair use, from artintelligence

Good acting and direction, intriguing text with questions on art, sorry, Art!  And the premise of the staging and set - putting the audience IN the studio with these two - is brilliantly effective.  Terrific set!  Highly recommended.
