Synopsis
Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, 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. 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.

At the Herbert Mark Newman Theatre, Neil went the "classical" route as Petruchio in Shakespeare's TAMING OF THE SHREW while Center Stage Playhouse saw him poke light-hearted fun at the Bard in THE COMPLEAT WORKS OF WM SHAKESPEARE - ABRGD.
