John Logan’s taut, visceral, surprisingly humorous show features artist Mark Rothko at the height of his career. Viewed through the lens of his youthful new assistant, Ken, we witness Rothko at the pinnacle of his creativity. Rothko is struggling through the creation of a series of large paintings commissioned to adorn the walls of New York’s brand-new Four Seasons Restaurant. As Ken and Rothko paint, they challenge each other to ask big questions about art (what it takes to create it and what its role should be in the world) and life. We look at how society and artistic sensibilities change, at ego, integrity and fashion. Set in the 1950s and based on a series of real events, this beautiful play takes a compelling look at the ever-changing relationship between an artist and his creations. Let yourself become immersed in the paintings and the process, and revel in the majesty of the language Rothko uses to express the inexpressible in this captivating play.
