A Weekend Celebrating Mark Rothko: Chamber performance of John Logan’s RED (Sept. 22)
Curious Theatre Company and the Denver Art Museum present a new chamber theater performance of John Logan’s Red. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play, Red is set in the late 1950s as renowned painter Mark Rothko struggles to complete his commissioned Seagram Murals for the Four Seasons in New York City. Red is an intense portrait of a troubled and brilliant mind, of a master painter keenly aware of the precarious balance of his artistic crown, seen through the eyes of the artist.
The original team of Curious' award-winning production — director Christy Montour-Larson, performers Larry Hecht and Benjamin Bonenfant — revisit Logan's script in this thrilling and dynamic reading. We invite you to look into the art and the sacrifice of making art, feel the exhilaration of the act, experience a captivating expression of ideas, and dare you to leave unmoved.
Doors open at 5:45 pm.
Tickets are $15 students, $18 DAMC and CultureHaus members, $20 DAM, $22 nonmembers.
