"Red" And Red Wine, In One Room

Ashland Contemporary Theatre

A couple of Rogue Valley theatre heavyweights join forces for the staging of the play "Red." 

The play, opening March 11th, brings Ashland Contemporary Theatre Artistic Director Jeannine Grizzard and Oregon Stage Works Artistic Director Peter Alzado as co-directors, with Alzado as the lead actor. 

The play concerns the art of the abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko, and explores his art and his life and the implications of each. 

"Red" is also the first production on a new stage at Grizzly Peak Winery near Ashland.  Alzado and Grizzard visit the studio to lay out their plans.
