It has been announced that Michael Grandage’s acclaimed production of John Logan’s Red will be screened in cinemas across the UK and North America on 7 November 2018.
Completing its final week at the Wyndham’s Theatre, the Michael Grandage company has confirmed its production of Red will be screened in selected cinemas across the UK and North America on the 7th November 2018.
Filmed at the Wyndham’s Theatre and presented by Trafalgar Releasing, the production is based on Grandage’s original 2009 Donmar Warehouse production, that went on to win six Tony Awards including for Best Play and Best Direction of a Play.
Talking about the news, director Michael Grandage said: “I am delighted that the original production of Red will be screened worldwide for all to see as part of MGC’s commitment to reach as wide an audience as possible. It has enjoyed a long life that has included the Donmar, Broadway, LA and finally the West End, so it is particularly wonderful that it will be broadcast in cinemas later this year with Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch on stage at the Wyndham’s Theatre.”
Red reunited playwright John Logan and Michael Grandage following Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw which formed part of MGC’s inaugural season in the West End in 2013, and their feature film Genius.
John Logan commented: “To me the release of the original production of Red in cinemas feels like a natural conclusion to a run that began a decade ago in London. I’m thrilled that a wider audience will get to share in the work of these two extraordinary actors – especially the towering presence of Alfred Molina, who began this journey with Michael Grandage and me so long ago. Working on Red has always been a joy and privilege, and I’m thrilled to have this consummate production of my play preserved on film.”
Tickets for the cinema screening will be available from the 15th August. For more information visit: https://www.redincinemas.com/
