I’m always interested in plays, books or movies about the creative process, and the current hit show and Tony Award winner on Broadway by John Logan about abstract impressionist Mark Rothko is a great example of the genre. Alfred Molina is brilliant as the famously intellectual artist, and I loved the play in spite of several barbs directed at interior designers and their clients who think of art as merely decoration. Rothko’s goal was to create art that is a transcendent, spiritual experience for the viewer and the play successfully communicates the process by which his mesmerizing canvasses were born.
