Free Tickets For RED Offered At Cincinnati Playhouse In the Park 10/30
In recognition of National Arts and Humanities Month, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park is offering a limited number of free tickets to the 7 p.m. performance of John Logan's intense, exciting and Tony Award-winning RED on Sunday, October 30.
The evening of RED begins at 6 p.m. with a lecture by local artist Tina Tammaro as part of Playhouse Perspectives, a free pre-show lecture series. Tammaro will discuss the world of abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko and his artistic legacy.
Set in 1958, RED follows Mark Rothko's life during the period in which he accepted the largest commission in the history of modern art to create murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant in the new Seagram Building in Manhattan. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio in the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.
Reservations for up to four tickets to the performance may be made starting Thursday, October 13, at 10 a.m. by calling The Playhouse box office at 513/421-3888. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
The Playhouse is supported, in part, by the generosity of the tens of thousands of individuals and businesses that give to ArtsWave. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund The Playhouse with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. The Playhouse also receives funding from the Shubert Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. It is designed to encourage all Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives, and to begin a lifelong habit of active participation in them.
