The 7 PM performance of the acclaimed drama at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street) will benefit the non-profit organization.

The 90-minute Red co-stars Tony nominee Alfred Molina and Tony winner Eddie Redmayne. "Master American expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art. But when his young assistant gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing," according to press notes.

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. The production will offer its final performance June 27.
