Auditions

Red

by John Logan


Directed by Dana Schultes

Abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has taken on an assistant to aid him in creating the largest commission in the history of modern art. As the two study and learn about each other, tensions mount, and when the assistant begins to challenge the ideas of his mentor, Rothko is faced with the possibility that his crowning achievement may also become his downfall. With crackling wit and profound depth, this tight, provocative piece is a searing look into the disquieting depths of an artist's ambition and vulnerability. Nominated for seven Olivier Awards, and winner of six Tony Awards in 2010, including Best New Play.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

by Christopher Durang


Directed by Harry Parker

Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia live on the farmhouse estate where they grew up, resigned to their lot and the daily routine of coffee and prophecies from their maid. When their glamorous movie-star sister Masha shows up with her new boy-toy Spike and a bit of bad news, a Chekhovian wind blows through the orchard out back, and a weekend of rivalry, regret, and raucousness begins. Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.
