Directed by Catherine Bodenbender and featuring MBP favorites Mike Schulz and Tristan Odenkirk.

Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest  commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work. Winner of the 2010 Tony Award.
