>> The Sul Ross Theatre Program will present “Red,” a play by John Logan and directed by Sul Ross theatre professor Dona Roman at 7:30 p.m. today and at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Sul Ross studio theater, Alpine. Red follows abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko at the height of his fame but struggling through the creation of a series of paintings, commissioned to appear as a series in New York’s brand-new Four Seasons Restaurant. As Rothko and his young assistant Ken paint alongside one another, they challenge each other to ask big questions about art: what it takes to create it and what its role should be in the world. Set in the 1950s, and based on a series of real events, Red takes a compelling look at the ever-changing relationship between an artist and his creations. Red contains strong language. Parental guidance suggested for children under 14 years of age. Ticket prices are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and children. Sul Ross students, faculty and staff get in free with valid ID. Tickets or season subscriptions available in the Fine Arts Building, room 106, or online at www.sulross.edu/theatre.
