The play, Red, at American Stage

Yesterday, we saw the play, Red, at American Stage.  I thought the back and forth between two actors for 85 minutes was enjoyable.  It is interesting that some people associate some colors with unpleasantness, and how some colors are associated with death.

Art and the art world is composed of artists and art galleries and gallery owners, and art critics, and publishers and consumers.  How the artist wants art to be appreciated, and the person wanting the art wants decoration for a restaurant.  Painters have many shades of colors.

Employees are employed by the employer to do certain things.  When a painter’s assistant causes doubt that his art would be appropriate for the proposed site, he causes the end of the relationship and thus the end of his employment.

One of the actors according to the playbill was from the Seattle area.  I found the play to be interesting, here’s what some of the first few things from a search engine reveal.
