Alfred Molina plays Mark Rothko. Eddie Redmayne plays his assistant. There is no intermission. The words are poetic, the acting intense. If you were painting in the early 60’s or interested in art around that time go see this play. It’s about Mark Rothko’s commission to paint murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant at the Seagrams building in New York. It certainly brought me back to that time. I was putting the records on while stretching and priming big canvases. The actors prime a huge canvas on stage. A good read is Lee Seldes’ book, The Legacy of Mark Rothko. It’s the true story of his daughter and the collectors of Rothko’s paintings, a greedy bunch they were those men from Marlborough gallery.
