It's become so difficult to get tickets to Arena Stage's production of the Tony-winning play Red, the theater has already extended its run an extra week -- and it hasn't even opened yet. A co-production with Chicago's Goodman Theatre, Arena's Red stars Edward Gero as the brilliant and passionate painter Mark Rothko facing the biggest challenge of his career. Robert Falls directs. Opens Friday, Jan. 20, at 8 p.m., but as of press time no tickets are available until Thursday, Jan. 26. Extended to March 11. Mead Center for American Theater, 1101 6th St. SW.
