Former Chicago playwright John Logan will have his first play on Broadway this spring, when Red opens at the Golden Theatre on April 1, according to a report in Playbill.com. The play, currently running at London’s Donmar Warehouse, stars Alfred Molina as abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko. Previews begin March 11.

Logan, a Northwestern University alum, began his playwriting career in Chicago in the mid-1980s, when the now-defunct Stormfield Theatre presented Never the Sinner, his drama about the Leopold-Loeb murder case. (It was revived last summer by Project 891 Theatre Company.)
