‘Red’ comes to Warehouse PAC

CORNELIUS – John Logan’s Tony Award-winning “Red” comes to the Warehouse Performing Arts Center this month.

“Red” explores master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. He landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art.

In the two years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio. But when Ken challenges him, Rothko faces the possibility that his achievement could also become his undoing.

The play stars Kevin Roberge and Austin Larkin. Melissa Ohlman-Roberge directs the play.

Performances start at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Aug. 14-Aug. 23. Tickets cost $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors, students and groups.

Reservations can be made at 704-619-0429.
