Lindsay Allen in RED LIGHT WINTER

We figured Department alum Lindsay Bartlette Allen would take the New York theatre world by storm, since that's where she went -- but now she's capturing headlines in Chicago, thanks to the new play Red Light Winter.

Red Light WinterThe play, produced by the Fairlane Theatre Company, is an unapologetically nervy one; Lindsay plays a Dutch prostitute rented as a "gift" for a writer on the brink of suicide. It's been garnering excellent reviews and will run through March 8th.
