Playwright John Logan's Tony Award winning Best Play, "Red", opens with master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko having just launched the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also be his undoing. The New York Times called the play: "Intense and exciting." the New Yorker: "smart. eloquent entertainment." The play will feature long time Oldcastle favorite Peter Langstaff who recently was in the Capital Rep production of "Shakespeare in Love" in Albany, and Brendan McGrady who made his Oldcastle debut in last season's "Long Days' Journey into Night." A graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, McGrady recently appeared at Luna Stage Company, and with the Park Avenue Players.
