“What do you see?” Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question. What’s art? And who gets to decide anyway? It’s 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor’s. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Play, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to recently hit Broadway. Doug Donald, Loras College Director of Theatre, as Rothko and Ryan Decker, TWP Artistic Director, as Ken. Michelle Blanchard directs.
Voices X, the tenth anniversary of the month-long gallery exhibit and arts programs, and the warehouse itself is a perfect setting for this story to unfold. As the characters grapple with art, they too struggle to create a monumental work for an extraordinary setting.
