The Bridge Production Group revives Adam Rapp's dark drama about two American men who travel to Amsterdam to hire a prostitute. More…
'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.'
"An excellent play by Adam Rapp, getting a remount in a very fine production, genuinely speaks to the nuances of our experiences, the volume of what we encompass, the peculiar range of our true feelings...It is exciting and dynamic to be with these two characters, both performed remarkably well, both written remarkably well, implicitly debating what the well written play can accomplish."
