Before we talk about how cool this four-hour seminar is going to be, let’s get some background. This month, the Dallas Theater Center is giving us the local premier of Red, American writer John Logan’s two-man play about the life and work of the painter Mark Rothko. It’s a prime opportunity to collaborate with the Dallas Museum of Art to get involved, since the museum has a Rothko or two hanging in the collection. So here’s how the day will work. Seminar participants will start at the Wyly Theatre for a pre-show lecture followed by a matinee performance of Red. Then, the cast will join everyone for a walk to the DMA for a personalized tour of paintings that fit the play’s themes, hands-on art activities, and a discussion with the actors and DMA staff.
