Funny, Nice sets/costumes, Uneven, Entertaining

See it if this is a very nice adaptation of the original and retelling of the Adam & Eve story.

Don't see it if The play starts with a plot that is developed throughout but completely ignored & dropped at the end. Why? What happened with those people? Read more

Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are interested in the Adam&Eve story. Most of the dialog was very modern and sometimes funny. Alison Fraiser & Eve were great!

Don't see it if The subject matter doesn't interest you. It could be 20min shorter, the first scene in particular felt way too long.

"Tom Dulack's play is more like the Classics Illustrated version, abridging the action of the original and ramming home its points with the insistence of a Sunday school teacher."

"Fellowship for Performing Arts has given 'Paradise Lost' a first-rate physical production but unfortunately the script lacks any new wrinkles to engage our interest. Milton may have been the initial inspiration but not much of his masterpiece is left in this 21st century dramatization."

"'Paradise Lost' diminishes its source material with its reductionist ploys. While it has its moments of sweetness, it can't avoid wading in theological puddles. Ultimately, the resulting blend of humor, poetry, and rhetoric is insufficiently appealing to justify the play's distortions."
