Steppenwolf Theater Company members Christopher Denham, Lisa Joyce, and Gary Wilmes will reprise the roles they originally played in that company's production of Adam Rapp's Red Light Winter when the Barrow Street Theater presents the New York premiere of the play, beginning January 20. Rapp, who won the 2005 Joseph Jefferson Award for this work, will direct the production.

In the play, two college friends spend a wild and unforgettable evening in Amsterdam's red light district with a beautiful prostitute, but they find that their lives have changed forever when this bizarre love triangle plays out in unexpected ways a year later in the Manhattan's East Village.

The Barrow Street production of Red Light Winter will feature set design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Michele Tesdall, lighting design by Keith Parnham, and sound design by Eric Shin.

Denham was last seen on Broadway in the revival of Master Harold... and the Boys and Off-Broadway in Wintertime. Joyce's stage credits include The Grapes of Wrath and The Crucible. Wilmes has been seen in New York in House, More Lies about Jerzy, and Shoppers Carried by Escalators into the Flames.

Rapp is the author of such plays as Finer Noble Gases, Nocturne, and Faster. He is a writer for the hit television series The L Word and is the writer/director of the upcoming film Winter Passing, starring Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, and Ed Harris.
