Crave’s “RED” tackles the tumultuous creation of Mark Rothko’s famous Seagram murals—now experienced through the lens of ambitious female painters in 1958-1959.
Mark Rothko (played by Maia McCarthy) is at the creative pinnacle of her career, having just accepted the highest paying mural commission in history from the Four Seasons Restaurant—yet as she paints the Seagram murals, Rothko not only finds herself fighting the differing artistic philosophy of her assistant Ken (played by Kylie Jenifer Rose), but grappling with her own identity as an artist in the face of Consumerist America.

"There was an exhuberance in this very dynamic production that was missing from the Broadway production, and I could actually feel the pulsing of energy that Rothko described in colors."
