Award-Winning Play ‘Red’ Opens At TAP

The Tony Award-winning play Red by John Logan opened June 29 at Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) in Sturgeon Bay. Shows are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm through July 22.

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.

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.

Red features Drew Brhel as Mark Rothko and Matt Frye as Ken.

Tickets are $28 for general admission and $12 for students. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 920.743.1760, visit the daytime box office directly across the street from the theatre in downtown Sturgeon Bay, or go to
