News   Red Will Not Extend; Limited Engagement Will End on Schedule June 27 Red may be red-hot after its six Tony Award wins on June 13 — including Best Play, Best Featured Actor in a Play and Best Direction of a Play — but that doesn't mean audiences should expect an extension into the summer.

John Logan's play about abstract-expressionist artist Mark Rothko and his creative passion will end its limited run on schedule June 27 at the Golden Theatre. By close, the production will have played 101 performances and 22 previews.

Red won six 2010 Tony Awards for Best Play (the award goes to author John Logan and his producers), Best Direction of a Play (Michael Grandage), Best Featured Actor in a Play (Eddie Redmayne), Best Scenic Design of a Play (Christopher Oram), Best Lighting Design of a Play (Neil Austin) and Best Sound Design of a Play (Adam Cork). The production is also the winner of three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Play and Best Director, and the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Play.

Red opened April 1 at the Golden Theatre, reuniting Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne, who created their roles in the world-premiere production at the Donmar Warehouse in London in fall 2009. Red marked American playwright Logan's Broadway debut. He wrote the screenplay of "Sweeney Todd," and the play Never the Sinner.
