Review - Through The Yellow Hour: Apocalyptic Boho Days
by Ben Peltz - Oct 2, 2012

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Adam Rapp's Through The Yellow Hour is that the playwright/director has intentionally written a piece that will never be performed with a completely age-appropriate cast ‚Äď at least not legally in this country ‚Äď since it includes a fully nude, sexually suggestive scene between a thirty-year-old character and another who is fourteen.¬† But because the person playing the youth is obviously of age, the scene is likely to leave audience members thinking of the older character as someone who has learned to trust and be caring again, rather than as someone committing statutory rape.
