Alfred Molina in "Red" Broadway Show at the John Golden Theatre in NYC opened on March 11, 2010, and closed on June 27, 2010
Alfred Molina stars as the legendary abstract painter Mark Rothko in this new play about the artist's struggle with fame, fortune, and the challenge of creating new work. Broadway Review John Logan's two-man drama is a thrilling look at the artistic process and also a fascinating biographical sketch of a methodical painter who defied the stereotype of the reckless artist. Those who consider abstract art puzzling will likely find Red quite illuminating, and everybody can appreciate the dynamic performances being given by Molina and by Eddie Redmayne, who plays Rothko's young assistant, a budding artist with a terrifying past.
