If possible, read the play prior to the audition. If you cannot, at least Google the play and become familiar with it. You do not have to memorize the monologues or the dialogue if you are called back, but know them well.
ROTHKO: 50 or thereabout. He is uncompromising, brilliant, and intimidating. He argues fiercely. He is arrogant to a fault. But he is totally human. He looks deeply into his own paintings with a sense of anxiety and wonder. Actors will miss the point of the character if they focus only on his bombast and miss his deep and genuine love for his art and his need to be understood.
KEN: In his 20’s. The young assistant who wants to learn from the great Rothco. He begins the play in awe of Rothko, tentative, nervous, but his growth is remarkable. He increasingly challenges Rothko and emerges as Rothko’s intellectual equal. He is the voice of a new generation of artists that threatens Rothko’s rule.
Playwright Logan said the play is essentially about father/son.
Auditioners will deliver the two monologues uninterrupted.
Auditions will be closed.
