I am always interested in watching Jim Mezon, and his performance as Mark Rothko was very strong. he talked, he raged and he ranted. And he painted. he drank and he smoked and he talked. It was exhausting to watch, but fascinating.
David Coomber, who played Ken is definitely an actor to watch. Only a year out of theatre school, he carried the part with the right mixture of awe and bravado.
we left feeling as though we had been at an art lecture, but still with no real understanding of what makes an artist tick or why some art is great.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    Yes, great performances and the overall production was good – although I would not have wanted to be one of the poor souls in the front row with the edge of the elevated stage inches from their noses1As Cathy says, if education was the point, it failed. But as an insight into a driven personality it was effective.Enjoyable in any case.
