The Donmar Warehouse production of RED, a new American play by John Logan about the master of twentieth century abstract impressionism, Mark Rothko, opened on Broadway last night, Thursday, April 1 for a limited 15-week engagement at the Golden Theatre. Previews began on Thursday, March 11. BroadwayWorld captured the starry show arrivals.

RED stars Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne, who created their roles in the world premiere production at the Donmar. The production is directed by Donmar artistic director Michael Grandage. RED marks playwright Logan's Broadway debut.

RED is set in 1958 as New York artist Mark Rothko (Alfred Molina) has received the art world's largest commission to create a series of murals for The Four Seasons restaurant in the new Seagram building on Park Avenue. Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, Ken (Eddie Redmayne) and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Rothko faces his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. RED is a moving and compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing.

RED opened December 8, 2009 at the Donmar. The production was nominated for three 2010 Olivier Awards, including Best Play, with Eddie Redmayne winning the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

The production is designed by Christopher Oram, with lighting design by Neil Austin. Composer and sound designer is Adam Cork.
