Yesterday I saw Red, a play about Mark Rothko that has been a hit in London and has now come to New York for a limited engagement. There are just two in the cast: Alfred Molina playing Rothko and Eddie Remayne his assistant. I found it riveting and will be interested to see what reviewers think when it opens here next week. Doing a little procrastinating, I mean, serious research, I discovered that the play’s creator, John Logan, is currently writing the screenplay for The Invention of Hugo Cabret slated to start filming this summer in Europe. I would have said there is nothing else in common between the two artists, Rothko and Selznick, but maybe I’m wrong? As far as I know Brian isn’t a tortured Jewish artist and I would like to think he is a bit kinder to employees. On the other hand, he is pretty darn thoughtful as Rothko seems to have been. Well, I suppose if I tried I’d get more of the six degrees of whatever between them. But I’ve procrastinated enough I think.
