The Austin Peay State University Department of Theatre and Dance will kick off its 2014-15 season at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 25 and Aug. 26 in the Trahern Theater with John Logan’s Tony Award-winning play “RED.”
The play, directed by APSU Assistant Professor of Theatre Noel Rennerfeldt, tells the story of famed American painter Mark Rothko and his struggle between artistic integrity and commercialism while painting murals for the Four Seasons restaurant. The New York Times called the play “a portrait of an angry and brilliant mind that asks you to feel the shape and texture of thoughts.”
Red is a play by American writer John LOgan about artist Mark Rothko first produced by the Donmar Warehouse, London in December 2009.
Tickets are $5 for students/military/senior citizens and $10 for general admissions. Tickets can be purchased at the Trahern Box Office, which opens one hour prior to the show, or online.
