Letter: WICA’s 100th production, performances remarkable


Powerful, complex, humorous, driven, revealing, haunting words can hardly describe the effect “RED” will have on you, particularly if you are cozy within our culture. You don’t have to fancy yourself an artist to be affected by this remarkable work. Any individual whose conflicted soul demands answers not easily accessed will be moved to explore their search ad infinitum.

Andrew Grenier embodies Mark Rothko with precision and clarity in an unforgettable performance. His experience and dedication to the task at hand is enriching—a gift for all to contemplate. To see Chad Sommerville as Rothko’s abused young helper mature within the course of the play is an extraordinary experience in itself. Together in a stunning display of grace they prime a canvas—what will follow? Vito Zingarelli’s inspired direction is flawless.

A support team of technical expertise led by set designer David Gignac leaves no doubt of the serious intent by WICA to present their 100th production. Bravo to all!
