Critic Reviews

RED John LoganRead by Alfred Molina, Jonathan GroffWhen the first sound effects punctuate the silence, listeners know they have joined a live audience to experience this L.A. Theatre Works staged reading. Ken, a young assistant to Abstract Expressionist painter Mark Rothko, is starting his first day in Rothko's New York studio. Jonathan Groff skillfully projects Ken's hesitancy as he tries to suss out his new job, and his bigger-than-life employer. Alfred Molina, as Rothko, IS bigger than life. He's huge, in voice and temper, and conveys Rothko's immense intellect and artistic vision. Listeners are immediately drawn into the power of this drama, and the script teaches and engages. The sense of being part of the live audience in wait for the next explosion of activity is palpable. A terrific example of the success of listener engagement in recorded plays.

Great performance

It’s interesting to listen to a play performed in front of a live audience.

I was fortunate to see this play by Melbourne Theatre Company in 2012 at Sumner Theatre.
Despite its small-scale production, I found it very touching, and very well acted. The story itself was very well-known, and there were many cliches in the dialogue, but, it offered a great theatre experience.
