Red Light Winter
Tonight @ The Alchemist Theatre, 8 p.m.
Playwright Adam Rapp earned a lot of acclaim (including a 2006 Pulitzer Prize) and a bit of controversy for his risqué drama Red Light Winter, the story of two young, American guys who share a window prostitute in Amsterdam in an attempt to heal old wounds. The script requires a great deal of sex, nudity and emotional turbulence, which makes it a perfect fit for Milwaukee’s Youngblood Theater Company, a daring theater group made up of recent UWM graduates, who launch their second season with a production of the play through Feb. 6 at the Alchemist Theatre.
