Painting the Town “RED”: Bart Guingona and JC Santos to Light Up Manila’s Stage This June 2023

Bart Guingona and JC Santos return to the stage in The Necessary Theatre's critically acclaimed production of RED, coming to Manila's PETA Theater Center this June 2023.

A Colorful Comeback: “RED” by John Logan Returns to Manila

The Necessary Theatre’s critically acclaimed and award-winning production of RED by John Logan is making a triumphant return to Manila this June 2023, a decade after its celebrated 2013 run.

A Bold Reimagining with Seasoned Stars

Helmed once again by Bart Guingona as both director and actor, the limited 10-show run from June 9 to 18, RED will take place at the PETA Theater Center, featuring the talents of some of the industry’s most promising theater designers. This production serves as a milestone for Bart Guingona, marking his 40th year in the entertainment industry as he reprises the iconic role of Mark Rothko. Joining him is award-winning theater, TV, and film actor JC Santos, who makes his long-awaited return to the stage as Ken after a three-year absence.

The Perfect Play for a Post-Pandemic Revival


As the artistic director of The Necessary Theatre, Guingona believes RED is the ideal choice for the company’s comeback following the pandemic hiatus. The 90-minute drama is an engaging and thought-provoking exploration of art and the challenges of its creation. With Rothko’s opening question, “What do you see?”, this restaging invites audiences to examine the play even more closely.

A Talented Team of Designers

The production boasts a stellar artistic team, including award-winning film and stage composer Teresa Barrozo handling sound design. Up-and-coming designers Gabo Tolentino and Mark Daniel Dalacat round out the team, with Tolentino taking charge of lighting design and Dalacat serving as the assistant director and production designer.

RED will run on June 9 and 16 at 8:00 PM, and June 10, 11, 17, and 18 at 3:30 PM and 8:00 PM at the PETA Theatre Center.
