My inner art historian, which has mostly laid dormant since college graduation, was sparked back to life last night at B Street Theatre’s regional premiere of the Tony Award-winning play Red. Kicking off B Street’s 2012-2013 B3 Series, Red delves into the life of artist Mark Rothko, in the midst of a commission for a commercial company. The two-man play is a vibrant back-and-forth between artist and assistant, and the dialogue is anything but sophomoric.
Indulge your artistic senses by seeing Red, which runs Tuesdays-Sundays through Sept 22 (tickets available here).
