Seeing Red

Walking around the campus at Laramie County Community College, one might find a curious set of posters with a man’s hand gripping a dripping crimson paintbrush with the title “Red” in capital letters. The posters are just the first thing people see about this play: A whole other world is connected to this first LCCC fall production in mid-September.

The play, written by John Logan in 2009, centers on the story of Mark Rothko, an American abstract impressionist living in New York City in 1958. During this time, Rothko was commissioned to paint several murals for the Seagram Building. However, Rothko declined the project, and this play is a small snapshot into his life during that time.

The production opens on Rothko receiving a new assistant, Ken, who aids in constructing these murals for the Five Seasons’ restaurant. During the course of the five scenes, Rothko and Ken develop a mentor-student and a father-son relationship.
The biggest catch to this play? The cast. The only characters the audience sees the entire time are Mark Rothko and Ken. But, don't think for a second that because of the short number of characters that this production was an easy feat.
