10th Anniversary Season

 

John Logan's "RED"

 

We continue bringing you exciting theatrical work with an encore reading performance of the Tony award play "RED" by John Logan. There will be two performances, on Thursday and Friday, November 13th and 14th, at 8:00 pm in the Seelig Theatre at Sullivan county Community College in Loch Sheldrake. 

 

"RED" chronicles the story of painter Mark Rothko, and his aspiring assistant, as Rothko tries to fulfill the commission for the Seagram's Murals, which became masterpieces of 20th Century art. The New York Times called the play "Intense and exciting...". The New Yorker said it was "Smart, eloquent entertainment...behind its wallop is a lot of learning...".

 

Paul Austin performs Mark Rothko, and Bradley Diuguid performs his assistant. Admission is free and food and beverages will be served after the performance. For reservations and more information call  the Liberty Free Theatre at (845) 798-1527, or email us at libertyfree1@verizon.net.

 

John Logan is a prolific writer/producer of extraordinary talent. In addition to "RED," which received six Tony Awards, he received an Academy Award nomination for co-writing the Best Picture winner, "Gladiator," and his screenplay of the musical "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" received a Golden Globe award. Two new Logan plays premiered in 2013; "Peter and Alice" opened in London at the NoŽl Coward Theatre, and "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers" opened on Broadway at the Booth.
