Peter Marks said of the drama: “For all its highfalutin’ discourse — on abstract expressionism, Dionysus vs. Apollo, the pernicious advance of pop art — the most engrossing moment of Arena Stage’s immensely enjoyable ‘Red’ comes when the two actors dip their brushes into buckets and paint.” Read the rest of Marks’ review and check out the Backstage interview with Edward Gero.
