Red

Actors' Theatre, Santa Cruz, CA

 

 

By John Logan

Costume Designer: Valerie Marcus Ramshur

Director: Wilma Chandler

 

Valerie Marcus Ramshur seems to have a fun time dressing the actors in various stages of the art process: When Ken first arrives he looks like any college student, fresh-scrubbed and eager to impress. Once he becomes Rothko’s apprentice, his clothes are frequently paint splotched, though not as much as Kachuck’s. It’s a mark of thoroughness that even the shoes Kachuck wears while painting have their own share of paint drops.
