Azeotrope Theatre – Red Light Winter

Azeotrope TheatreFour years ago, newly arrived in Seattle, I happened to catch two wonderful plays featuring Richard Nguyen Sloniker in a lead role. Between his subtle comedy in Wonder of the World and adept delivery in Arcadia, it was clear his projects were worth keeping an eye on. I’m pleased to report that his newest, Red Light Winter at the Theatre off Jackson proves this true and then some.

Produced by Nguyen Sloniker’s new troop, Azeotrope Theatre, Red Light Winter transcends the cliched love triangle. Its sharp and touching script, combined with all three cast members’ engaging performances, leaves audience members pondering the production days later. In a theater season claiming more than a few disappointments (Sextet, The Scarlet Letter, The Real Inspector Hound), Azeotrope’s light, skillful touch¬†impresses all the more. I look forward to seeing what they do next.
