When: Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Continues through Jan. 29 2017
Is hell a place of eternal punishment for the wicked, or is it just other people? The question is complicated by issues of faith and geography — the hell of Dante's Divine Comedy is a far different place than that of the Mayans. Theatre Nuevo has worked up a devised theatrical piece to explore humanity's many iterations of hell, conveniently titled Hell. Using music, movement, personal gnostic revelation and copious research, the cast will present the long journey from damnation to redemption. Hell is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday (January 19 to 29) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; artful.ly/theatre-nuevo). Tickets are $15 to $20.
