How Would You Handle a Brush With Genius?
New York. 1958. Noted visual artist Mark Rothko – uncompromising, volatile, brilliant – undertakes a new commission. His newly hired assistant challenges the master’s theories. This production turns Parkway Playhouse into Rothko’s studio for a thrilling bio-drama as vivid as any primary color.
