Event Details

THEATREdART presents an original and unique adaptation of John Milton's famous "Paradise Lost," by local playwright Jeff Keele. 

When the fallen angel Lucifer is thrown from Heaven, his anger and resentment against what he describes as a tyrannical ruler, leads to his desire to overthrow God himself.  However, his fight ultimately causes him to become the tyrant that he fights against as he uses the newly created children of God, Adam and Eve, as pawns in his terrible battle. In "Paradise Lost" John Milton,  recounts the biblical story of the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden.

Staged as "promenade theater," TdA invites you to wear your comfortable shoes as there will be no seats for this speacial performance.  Similar to past TdA performances such as last year's "Reservoir Dogs" or 2011's "Jet of Blood,"  the audience is invited to explore the theater on their feet as they are led through this story of decpetion, rebellion and the original sin.

This adaptation was written by local playwright Jeff Keele who has painstakingly streamlined the original 10,000 word epic poem into an accessable and engaging evening of theater.

THEATREdART invites everyone, regardless of religion or philosophical pursuasion, to experience this story, however -

THEATRE SPELLED WITH A LITTLE d

Theatre 'd Art (or TdA, for short) is dedicated to enriching the arts community in Southern Colorado by staging bold and challenging works that won't be seen anywhere else in the region.  Furthermore, TdA believes theatre to be a vital and relevant part of the cultural landscape of our region and works diligently to bring a new audience to this vibrant and engaging art form; it hopes to challenge preconceived notions of what theatre is and can be and also continually works to bring new and original plays, written and performed by local artists, to the stage.  TdA values diversity in art and all other forms of expression and does not discriminate based on sex, race, age, creed, religion, or sexual-orientation. We continually strive to improve ourselves and the artistic environment of Southern Colorado and will continue to produce theatre that is engaging to us and our audiences, old and new.


HISTORY

TdA was founded in 2003 by Brian Mann and Jonathan Margheim with the intent to bring a new audience to the theatre and specialize in experimental, absurdist, and surrealist forms of the avant-garde tradition.  TdA makes it a goal to perform plays with unconventional presentation that challenge an audience by bringing to light controversial and complex social issues.  War, politics, human relationships—nothing is off-limits. 

Todd Wallinger of the Colorado Springs Gazette has called TdA productions some of the most provocative works ever produced in this citywith “staggering ambition and depth."  Tracy Mobley-Martinez of ColoradoSprings.com says of TdA, "The risks it consistently takes — whether with material, setting or tone — typically succeed or fail in spectacular fashion."

AWARdS

2012 -- TdA director Crystal Carter received a 2012 Special Accomplishment "True West" Award from John Moore (culturewest.org) for her work on TdA's immersive stage adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's RESERVOIR DOGS. 

2008 -- TdA was pronounced “Best New Theatre Company” by the Colorado Springs Independent. TdA also won the Colorado Springs Independent’s award for “Best Use of an Overweight Guy on a Toilet” for Jonathan Margheim’s adaptation of Alfred Jarry's “UBU.”
