Sweet & Lucky, a commissioned work by Brooklyn-based Third Rail Projects, is the DCPA’s first foray into large-scale immersive theatre. The production has sold out all 48 of its originally scheduled performances. Tickets for the six-week extension are now available at SweetAndLuckyDenver.com.
Off-Center is the DCPA’s the newest and most unconventional programming arm, focusing on upending theatrical expectations and traditions.

Sweet & Lucky is a “brave, lovely, original adventure,” according to Juliet Wittman of Westword, and it constitutes the largest physical undertaking in the DCPA’s nearly 40-year history.

The two-hour mobile adventure takes place in a sprawling 16,000-square-foot warehouse (owned by Westfield Company) on Brighton Boulevard. Attendees step into a mysterious antique store and plunge into a labyrinth of dreamlike encounters.
Audience members follow performers through intricately designed environments, into intimate engagements, and witness a series of seductive and haunting flashbacks. It’s a 360-degree experience that uses all five senses to evoke the power and fragility of memories. Audiences also enjoy specialty cocktails before and after the show crafted by award-winning mixologist Sean Kenyon at a pop-up version of Kenyon’s Williams and Graham speakeasy.
