Does have some interesting things to say about unbalanced and destructive male friendships, but unfortunatey blows it all by stepping into the old happy hooker chiché. I'm sorry, I just don't believe in well-adjusted gorgeous college girls hooking a little bit on the side, falling in love with a john because he's so good in bed. In a Fassbinder play maybe, but in a realistic context like this it just feels stale and moldy and stupid. I can't look pass it. ( )

I absolutely loved this play. Rapp's characters are brilliant - each one brought a unique and interesting personality to the table and I'm very interested to do this play in January. If nothing else, it will definitely be intriguing - it will be my first time stage managing a play with full nudity. ( )

Reasonably well-written, but shallow and somewhat mechanical. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865479542, Paperback)

It's totally familiar but dreamlike at the same time," observes one American of Amsterdam's notorious Red Light District in the stunning new work from Adam Rapp. Escaping their lives in Manhattan, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves thrown into a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful young prostitute named Christina. But the romance they find in Europe is eventually overshadowed by the truth they discover at home. Written with an unflinching poetic beauty, Red Light Winter is a play of sexual intrigue that explores the myriad and misguided ways we seek to fill the empty spaces inside us.
