Mary D. Fisher Theatre joins theaters around the world for special one night event
Sedona AZ (October 29, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world to present a one-night only world premiere of “Red” from London’s West End on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 4 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs this first ever UK revival since directing the world premiere at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009. The production went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Play.
Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.
Award-winning stage and screen actor Alfred Molina reprises his critically-acclaimed performance as the American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko. He is joined by rising star Alfred Enoch of US television drama series “How to Get Away With Murder” as his assistant Ken.
