Set in a New York studio in the Bowery as the artist Mark Rothko paints a series of murals for a lucrative commission at the Four Seasons in New York City, his assistant questions Rothko’s theories of art and decision to accept such a commercial project. A world auction record was set for a work of contemporary art when Mark Rothko’s “Orange, Red, Yellow” painted in 1961 recently sold for just under $87 million. This gripping play about the abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko was originally produced in London in December 2009 and transferred to Broadway in 2010. The Broadway production won six Tony awards including Best Play. This intense and exciting two-character bio-drama starred Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne (Broadway debut) and ran for 101 performances.
