Directed by Anders Cato, the production will officially open Feb. 3 for a limited engagement through Feb. 26.
A co-production with Cleveland Playhouse, the cast features Bob Ari (Broadway's Frost/Nixon) as Rothko and Randy Harrison (Broadway's Wicked, Showtime's "Queer as Folk") as Ken.
"Lit from within and fueled by the passion of their creator, Mark Rothko's Seagrams Murals are powerful paintings of crimson, maroon and black that were intended to hang in a building designed by architectural titans," according to George Street notes. "But when a new assistant enters his studio, Rothko finds himself reconsidering the future of his works as he is confronted by the rise of the next generation."
