'Red Light Winter' confronts the expectations of fantasy, the disappointment of reality, and the complexities of unrequited love—a twisted and complicated web spanning Amsterdam's Red Light District to the East Village. 'Red Light Winter' is part of The Bridge's month-long residency at The Robert Moss Theatre, and is performed in rotating repertory with 'Hedda' and 'The Sonnets.'
