CANDYLAND, a descent into the lurid landscape of sexual deviance, explores the connection between a sexually voracious architect and the grisly rape-murder of a prostitute. Alan Sklar has a wide repertoire of female and male voices that satisfies its demands. He is convincing as the needy, desperate Benjamin Thorpe, an architect in Manhattan on more than one kind of business, and also as the tender, young prostitute, Cindy, and the dominatrix, Fatima. Sklar is also convincing as the weary prostitute, LaTasha, who rescues Thorpe from the street after a fight in the X-S Salon; the multitude of prostitutes with whom Thorpe has phone sex; and police detectives who search New York's seamy underworld for the rapist/killer.
