L

ompoc Civic Theatre welcomes the community to a staged reading of John Logan’s drama “RED” on July 26-28.

Performances will take place in Stone Pine Hall, 210 So. H St., in Lompoc, on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and

Sunday at 2:00 pm.

After Sunday’s show there will be a Q&A (talk

back) with the cast and crew. “RED” is set in

the New York studio of modernist painter Mark

Rothko in 1958-59. It traces the developing rela-

tionship between Rothko and his new assistant

Ken as Rothko works on a series of murals for

the new Four Seasons Restaurant. At the time,

this was the biggest commission in the history

of modern art. As Ken gains the confidence to

challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing pos-

sibility that his crowning achievement could also

become his undoing.

“RED” won the 2010 Tony Award for Best

Play, and according to Theatre Communications

Group, it was the most widely produced play

in the US in 2011-12 and remained in the top

ten for the next two years. The original London

and Broadway cast featured Alfred Molina and

Eddie Redmayne. In LCT’s production Rothko

is played by Mike Cook and Ken is played by

Charles Frank. Larry McLellan is director. Ad-

mission to the staged reading is on a donation

basis.

Please note that “RED” contains adult lan-

guage. For more information, contact LCT at
