    Winner of six Tony Awards including best play.

    It’s 1958, and famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko has just been offered the biggest commission in the history of modern art to paint a series of murals for The Four Seasons restaurant inside the new Seagram Building. Rothko and his young assistant, Ken, work feverishly in their New York studio – until Ken begins to realize his fundamental ideas of what art is are vastly different than those of his mentor. As Ken begins to question Rothko’s motivations to work on such a commercial project, the already troubled artist begins to unravel as he dwells on his own mortality and the legacy he is to leave behind.
