If suspending your imagination and enjoying a good show sounds appealing, fly on over to The Des Moines Community Playhouse, where for $15 a ticket this October, you can watch the play "Red." Chronicling the life of Mark Rothko, a bad boy modern art world genius, the play depicts the story of how Rothko is commissioned to paint murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. For two years he works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in a studio in the Bowery. But when Ken challenges the great artist, Rothko rages at the contradiction between art and commercialism, ambition, and vulnerability.
Des Moines Community Playhouse is located on 42nd Street just a minute north of the I-235 Exit 5B. The audience is invited to a pre-show talk with the artistic staff half an hour before the show. Drinks will be available for sale.
$15 for tickets to any performance of Red Oct 18-Nov 3
The Des Moines Community Playhouse is the second largest and sixth oldest continuously operating community theatre in the United States. Famous alums include Oscar and Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman and writer/director Peter Hedges.
