The Tony Award Winner for Best Play in 2010, Red is an intense 2 character bio-drama that follows expressionist painter Mark Rothko and the dynamic relationship between the artist and his work. When Rothko is commissioned to create a painting for the Four Seasons restaurant, he works through his internal challenges about “selling out” with his young and talented assistant.

Cohabitating middle-aged siblings, Vanya & Sonia, have their lives turned upside down when their movie star sister, Masha, returns to the family home with her much younger lover, Spike, to announce she’s selling the family home where the pair resides. This uproarious comedy takes Chekhov’s characters and plots and transports them to a dysfunctional modern-day family. Tony Award Winner for Best Play in 2013.
