Salem Theatre is proud to present the return of Red by John Logan produced by Special Characters. July 9 -12. Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3pm. Red illuminates the relationship between an artist and his work. "Artist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing." Red is directed by CJ DiOrio (recently seen as Tommy in The Normal Heart) featuring Ted Silva and Josh Raposa. Designed and produced by Tommy Steriti and Joseph Canning. Special Characters is an independently operated and student run theater company, developed out of St. John's Prep Theater Arts, that aims to create a meaningful experience for both ourselves and our audiences. Tickets are $17 in advance online and $20 at the door.
