RED Breaks Arena Stage Box Office Records



As of Saturday, February 18, 2012 John Logan's Tony Award-winning drama Red, under the direction of Goodman Theatre Artistic Director Robert Falls, becomes the highest-grossing non-musical in Arena Stage's 61-year history.

The production, which is produced in association with Goodman Theatre, features four-time Helen Hayes Award winner and D.C.-based actor Edward Gero as abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko and noted Chicago actor Patrick Andrews as Rothko's fictional assistant Ken.

Red continues through March 11, 2012 in the Kreeger Theater. Tickets are still available at or by calling 202-488-3300.

"It's wonderful when a production hits the zeitgeist of the moment, and Red is it for our audiences," says Arena Stage Artistic Director Molly Smith. "Perhaps it's because we are a museum town, but even more so I believe it's the uncompromising quality of Robert Falls' production with two outstanding actors in Edward Gero and Patrick Andrews."
