The Wyndham’s Theatre continues its tradition of staging some high profile shows with big names as it welcomes Red from May 2018, reuniting both director Michael Grandage and star Alfred Molina from the Donmar Warehouse production of 2009.

Red focuses on the famous American artist Mark Rothko, an practitioner who made a name for himself during the 20th century, creating abstract impressionist art that continues to cement his legacy decades after his death in 1970.

Much of Rothko’s success was felt in the 1950s, when he presented work in galleries around the world, and it was in that decade in which he was also commissioned to create murals for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York.

It is that commission that forms the basis of the show Red as we catch up with Rothko, as played by Alfred Molina, in the late 1950s as he works on the murals in New York, with his assistant Ken (Alfred Enoch) tending to his needs. During the course of the show Ken questions Rothko’s reasons for embarking upon the project, challenging the artist’s opinions on his field and forcing him to confront his decision to take on a commercial project.

The story has a historical basis, with Rothko famously turning his back on the work with the Four Seasons, calling the restaurant ill-suited for his work and returning the money he had been paid up front. So this show will provide a fictional insight into an artist’s mindset during an infamous period.

The play was penned by writer John Logan, known for a range of shows on the stage and screen, and its reception in 2009 ensures that this will be another anticipated show for the West End. With that in mind it is only right that they call upon some top talent to bring it to fruition, with director Michael Grandage returning alongside performer Alfred Molina. The former is a regular West End director who also helms The Lieutenant Of Inishmore in 2018, whilst the latter has appeared in various theatrical productions and is best known for his film work.

Red returns to the capital with a run at the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre from Friday 4th May 2018.
