BWW TV: RED with Molina & Redmayne - Opens Tonight
The critically acclaimed Donmar Warehouse production of RED, a new American play by John Logan about the master of twentieth century abstract impressionism, Mark Rothko, will open on Broadway on Thursday, April 1 for a limited 15-week engagement at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue). Previews began on Thursday, March 11. BroadwayWorld.com is excited to present a short documentary about the original London production!
RED will star Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne, who created their roles in the world premiere production this winter at the Donmar. The production will be directed by Donmar artistic director Michael Grandage. RED will mark playwright Logan's Broadway debut.
As part of the Donmar's commitment to greater accessibility, producer Arielle Tepper Madover has announced that more than 60 tickets priced at $25 will be available at every performance through Telecharge.com and the Golden Theatre box office.
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.
Tickets ($116.50-$25) are available throughTelecharge.com by phone at 212-239-6200 or online at
