The Asian Premiere of "Red"

The Necessary Theatre proudly announces the Asian premiere of Red, a 2010 Tony Award Winner for Best Play, which wil be on February 22, 2013 at 7:30pm in the SDA Theater, 5/F College of St. Benilde School of Design And Arts located at Pablo Ocampo St., Malate, Manila. The show will be produced by Actors Inc. and College of St. Benilde’s The Vito Cruz Project

Bart Guingona as Rothko and Joaquin Valdes as Ken

Red was written by American writer John Logan which tells the story of famous abstract expressionist painter artist Mark Rothko. In 1958, the abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko was commissioned, for an astounding sum, to paint a series of murals for the cutting edge Seagram Building on Park Avenue. After completing the works, he decides to keep them and returns every penny of his commission. Years later, he donates the works to the Tate Gallery in London and commits suicide.

The show introduces a fictitious assistant who engages Rothko in arguments and conversations that ultimately make us understand why he might decide to withdraw his work from the commission. Playing Rothko is theater veteran Bart Guingona who also will direct the show. Another theater veteran, Joaquin Valdes will be playing the fictional assistant Ken.

For more details about the show, check their Facebook Page: The Necessary Theatre. For tickets, just go to Ticketworld or call 8919999 and 09159108098. Other show dates are February 23, March 1 and 2, 2013.
