The many facets of love are named and weighed when Purple Rose Theatre Company presents Welcome to Paradise, a world premiere by Julie Marino. Directed by Michelle Mountain, performances are June 20 through Aug. 31 at The Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea.
Set in the Caribbean, Welcome to Paradise centers around two people, who, despite their age difference, find love and acceptance in each other. With a generation gap (or more) between them, they discover they have more in common with each other than they thought.
The work asks: At what age can one find one’s soulmate? Are there boundaries to true friendship and affection? What, exactly, is the meaning and nature of love? Contains adult language.
