Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) presents Red, written by John Logan, from April 12 through May 5 (except no performance April 28). This Tony Award-winning play is an intense two-actor knockout that takes us into the mind of abstract expressionist Mark Rothko, for whom paintings are “pulsating” life forces.

Raw and provocative but peppered with humor, Red chronicles the painter’s two-year labor to complete a lucrative set of murals for Manhattan’s exclusive Four Seasons restaurant. When Rothko's young assistant, Ken, gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.  

The show contains some strong language and mature themes. BAT’s policy is to inform audiences of content but to allow individuals to make decisions they feel are appropriate for themselves or the youth and teens in their care.

Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. (except no performance on Sunday, April 28) in the Theater at Kennedy Catholic High School, 140 S. 140th St., Burien, WA 98168. The show runs approximately 95 minutes with no intermission.

There is plenty of free on-site parking. Masks are required at all performances and will be provided by BAT if you don’t have one.

Ticket prices range from $7 to $25. Student tickets are $5. Enjoy opening weekend deals: Only on Saturday, April 13, all tickets are $13. Only on Sunday, April 14, which is BAT’s Seven Buck Sunday, admission is just $7. If ticket pricing is a barrier, reach out to BAT at—theater is for everyone! For tickets and details, go to or call 206-242-5180 (message only).

Red is sponsored by 4Culture through the King County Lodging Tax and the City of Burien.
