Check out this interview with the director of Red, Michael Grandage


Michael Grandage, the MGC Artistic Director, directs the first ever UK revival of John Logan’s play Red, starring Alfred Molina as Mark Rothko.

In Red, American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko finds himself threatened by a new generation of artists. Beneath this threat and the watchful gaze of his young assistant, Ken, Rothko undertakes his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work of art for an extraordinary setting.

Award-winning stage and screen actor Alfred Molina received critical acclaim for his performance as Rothko, and now reprises that role alongside rising star Alfred Enoch: known for his role on the US television drama How to Get Away With Murder. Enoch plays Rothko’s young assistant Ken.

Take a look at an interview with Michael Grandage and Christopher Oram here:

John Logan and Michael Grandage have worked together previously on the feature film Genius, and on Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw: a play which formed part of MCG’s inaugural season in 2013 in the West End.
In 2009, the world premiere of Red (also directed by Grandage) won six Tony Awards, including Best Play, for its run at the Donmar Warehouse.
