Tim Daly to Star in ‘Red’
DTF opens its 39th season with its production of ‘Red’ by John Logan, known for his Academy Award-winning screenplays for ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Any Given Sunday.’ ‘Red’ is a play about renowned artist Mark Rothko at the peak of his career, and captures the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations. “The play asks audiences an important question: What do you see when you look at a work of art? What is art? Who gets to decide anyway?” explains Dina Janis, DTF’s Artistic Director.
The role of Mark Rothko will be played by Emmy Award winning actor and political activist Tim Daly. Daly is a veteran of Broadway and Off Broadway and is also known for his work in television and film. The role of Rothko’s assistant, Ken, is played by Charles Socarides, a renowned stage actor from New York. The production will be helmed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, known to regional audiences for her hit production of Theresa Rebeck’s play ‘The Scene’ last summer at DTF. Performances begin on Wednesday, June 18, and run through Sunday, July 6. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit dorsettheatrefestival.org or call 802-867-2223.
