Plenty of snacks and drinks for purchase or you can go to dinner at a great Thai restaurant, Racha, or grab some pizza at Pagliacci. Both are walking distance a few minutes away.

We circled for street parking but ended up paying $15 to park in the Seattle Center garage across from McCaw Hall on Mercer St. There is a convenient skybridge to cross the street.

I think my artist/philosopher husband got more out of this than I did. I'm a fan of the Seattle Rep, and these two actors were both QUITE good but I felt the play kind of dragged since it was so much about ideas.

Fascinating portrayal of Rothko and expression of his ideas which influenced his art. Excellent acting.

The acting was great. Set too. Though art and Rothko is a very thought-provoking I'm not sure it was enough for me for a 90 minute play. May be for others...

Description

by John Logan

directed by Richard E.T. White

Produced in association with Arizona Theatre Company

“What do you see?” Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant, Ken, the loaded question. What’s art? And who gets to decide anyway? It’s 1958, and Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art. He and Ken work feverishly in his New York studio—until Ken begins to realize his answers to those fundamental questions about art are very different than his mentor’s. Winner of six Tony Awards, this sizzling 90-minute drama is one of the most intellectually riveting shows to hit Broadway last season.
