Profound, Intelligent, Quirky, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you like experiments in theater that also profoundly engage deep questions about life & death.

Don't see it if you only want to see conventional plays. Read more

Experimental, Ambitious, Absorbing, Edgy, Intelligent

See it if you enjoy experimental theater in unconventional spaces where a car is driven into the space and there is a cute robot. Great acting also.

Don't see it if you don't like contemporary art or weird risk tasking theater. It's a short play, but you might be bored if you don't like poetic works.

"Paradoxically bleak and buoyant...A select assortment of beings, human and otherwise, are considering the end of us all in deeply affecting terms...Though Mr. Maxwell is cherished by avant-garde European audiences, his work has always been quintessentially American, and never more so than with 'Paradiso'...“Paradiso” is steeped in what could be described as a ruthless sentimentality."
