Rehearsal images have been released for Michael Grandage’s production of Red, playing at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 4th May. Here’s a glimpse of what has been happening…
Michael Grandage is reviving John Logan’s play which examines a two year period of the life and career of Mark Rothko, having last been seen at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009.
Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.
The production sees Alfred Molina reprising his role as Mark Rothko, while Alfred Enoch joins the production to play Ken, Rothko’s young assistant.
This revival reunites John Logan and Michael Grandage following Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw which formed part of Michael Grandage Company’s inaugural season in the West End in 2013, and their feature film Genius.
After its run at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009, John Logan’s play transferred to Broadway, going on to win a number of awards at the 2010 Tony Awards for Best play, Best Featured Actor in a Play for Eddie Redmayne, Best Direction of a Play for Michael Grandage, Best Scenic Design of a Play for Christopher Oram, Best Lighting Design of a Play for Neil Austin, and Best Sound Design of a Play for Adam Cork.
Red will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 4th May until the 28th July. To book tickets click here or visit: Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Ticketmaster.co.uk, See Tickets.com, Encore Tickets, Love Theatre.com ,Last Minute.com and From the Box Office.
