Jun 13, 2014 — Pendragon Theatre has opened its summer season with the award-winning play "Red." The two character bio-drama, written by John Logan, is set in Mark Rothko's art studio in New York City in the late 1950s. Rothko was a well-known abstract expressionist known for images which featured large, and luminous color blocks. In the play, Rothko is painting a group of murals commissioned by an exclusive restaurant, and the story follows the initiation of Ken, a young assistant, into Rothko's world. Pendragon's production features a local cast, and is sponsored by the Adirondack Artists Guild.
