LSC-North Harris Presents “RED,” the Tony Award-Winning Play by John Logan

The Lone Star College-North Harris Division of Fine Arts presents “Red,” the 2010 Tony Award-winning  play from John Logan. “RED” chronicles two years in the life of Mark Rothko, a master abstract expressionist who has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art. Daily performances are scheduled for Oct. 17 through Oct. 21.

Raw and provocative, “RED” is a searing portrait of an artist's ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing.

Nightly performances will take place Wednesday, Oct. 17 through Saturday, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m. On Sunday, Oct. 21, the play will conclude with a 2 p.m. matinee show. It is not recommended for small children.

The performances will take place in the college’s Performing Arts Theater located in the Fine Arts Building at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive, Houston, Texas. Tickets are $10 for general admission and reservations are recommended.
