Depot Theatre’s “Red” by Tim Rowland
There’s not too much about pretentious artists that hasn’t already been explored, but even by the breed standard, abstract expressionist Mark Rothko — as depicted in John Logan’s Red — takes the cake.
“I’m fascinated by me,” Rothko (played by Jeff Williams) chirps in the Depot Theatre’s second production of their 2022 season. The thing is, we’re fascinated by him too, as he rants, browbeats, erupts, interrupts, insults, and self-glorifies his way through two years spent in his Bowery studio in the late 1950s.
Rothko, a Russian Jew who immigrated to America in 1913, gained acclaim for his fields of color, and the intellectual battles contained therein. Red is based on actual events, following a storyline that is compelling in its own right, but also one that helps us understand what’s so special about red rectangles.

Thru August 7. More info and tickets HERE.
