About the show

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.'

See it if you will enjoy watching three talented actors go through their paces.
