Jason Maddy and John Vickery in RED
Red: By John Logan
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES • Lyceum Stage • 29 March - 27 April 2014
Red is the sixth production of the company's 38th season by John Logan and directed by Sam Woodhouse, co-founder and artistic director of San Diego REP. The story is set in 1958 at a critical point in the career of the abstract impressionist painter, when Mark Rothko has been challenged to create a definitive work of art for the exclusive Four Seasons restaurant. He struggles with the threatening presence of a neophyte assistant, who represents a voice of a new generation of artists that questions Rothko's theories and label him a sell-out. Surrounded by massive black and red canvases that pulsate with color, the result is a battle between student and master in search of the highest art possible. This larger-than-life portrait of an angry of an angry and brilliant artistic mind is a fearless piece of work that dares to explain the mysteries of creation.
Red was written by John Logan who wrote the Academy Award-nominated screenplays for The Gladiator and "The Aviator." He won a Golden Globe for his film version with Tim Burton of the musical "Sweeney Todd." He also co-wrote the recently acclaimed James Bond film Skyfall and is slated to write the next two Bond films.
