Very nice venue - it was my first time there. Great acting; however, I felt the playwright expected the audience to be familar with artists to have a better understanding of this play.

San Jose Stage's Artistic Director Randall King and actor Aaron Wilton gave awesome performances in this thoughtful, dramatic and deftly acted, directed and designed production. Art isn't pretty... should it ever be? Creation can be exhilarating,...continued

Extremely interesting themes in the play; learned much about artistic sensibilities, personalities, and Mark Rothko in particular. Terrific acting.

I think it was a tour de force for Randall King, I also agree with the reviewer that Rothko's inner pain doesn't come through as well as it might.

I think Aaron Wilton as Ken did a creditable job!

All in all an excellent production - well...continued

This play was well done... I just found the gravity a bit much at the end of a busy work day. My fault entirely. But well done, all the seats are great. I have been impressed by Stage Theater for sure. I plan to be back for other productions.

GO SEE THIS PLAY!! I did not have any expectations going into the theater but by the final bows I was the first on my feet to give a standing ovation. Aaron Wilton as Ken was excellent and the perfect counter to Randall King's bravura performance...continued

This wasn't the San Jose Stage Company's best production, but it still provided good fodder for contemplating the nature of art and creation. I enjoyed that artwork was displayed on stage and that some "painting" even happened live.

A major...continued

The play was interesting to a point but got a bit tedious. It has no intermission & has a lot of screaming & intense emotions. The acting was excellent as usual. All seats in the Stage Theatre are terrific.

Lots of intriguing ideas about art and its significance in this 2-person faceoff. Go a bit early to read the program, which is particularly useful in introducing the plot and themes through the history of the play and the playwright. Performance...continued
