Red opens in Shamblin Theatre at Lipscomb University on October 4, and we can’t wait for you to experience this electrifying show! The winner of the 2010 Tony for Best Play, Red is about art, immortality, and the battle of wills between celebrated artist Mark Rothko and his new assistant (and future rival?) Ken.
