DCPA's Off-Center Announces Full Cast and Creative Team for THIS IS MODERN ART

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) is proud to announce full casting and creative team for Off-Center's production of This Is Modern Art. Based on a true incident in Chicago where a graffiti crew created an elaborate tag on the side of the Art Institute of Chicago's brand new Modern Wing, This Is Modern Art gives a glimpse into the lives of anonymous graffiti artists and asks us to question the true purpose of art.

After a controversial premiere as part of the Steppenwolf for Young Adults series, the Off-Center production marks the first time that Idris Goodwin has directed the piece, which he co-authored alongside Kevin Coval.

This Is Modern Art will feature Robert Lee Hardy (DCPA Education's The Snowy Day, Vintage Theatre's A Time To Kill) as Seven, John Jurchek (Curious Theatre Company's Hand To God, DCPA Theatre Company's Jackie & Me) as Ensemble, Chloe McLeod (Miners Alley Playhouse's Fun Home, DCPA's A Christmas Carol) as Selena, Jake Mendez (Aurora Fox's Hedwig and the Angry Inch, DCPA Debut) as Dose, Marco Robinson (Miners Alley Playhouse's Fun Home, Off-Center's The Wild Party) as Jose Clemente/JC, and Brynn Tucker (Local Theater Company's The Rape of the Sabine Women, DCPA Theatre Company's Frankenstein) as Ensemble.

The production will include designs by Nicholas Renaud (Scenic Designer), Meghan Anderson Doyle (Costume Designer), Katie Gruenhagen (Lighting Designer), Elisheba Ittoop(Sound Designer),

Topher Blair (Projection Design), Robin Munro (Graffiti Artist), Grady Soapes (Casting), and stage management by Rick Mireles.

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) is the largest non-profit theatre organization in the nation, presenting Broadway tours and producing theatre, cabaret, musicals, and innovative, immersive plays. Last season the DCPA engaged with more than 1.2 million visitors, generating a $150 million economic impact in ticket sales alone. Additionally, DCPA Education serves more than 105,000 students of all ages and skill levels through classes, in-school programs, matinees and audience engagement opportunities.

As the newest and most unconventional line of programming of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Off-Center specializes in unexpected experiences such as Sweet & Lucky, the first large-scale immersive show in Denver and The Wild Party, a decadent 360° party set in the Roaring 20s. An Off-Center show is like no other theatre experience-by design. Off-Center focuses more on connecting people and upending expectations than on adhering to tradition. If you leave the show thinking "I've never seen anything like it," then Off-Center has done its job. We want you to lose yourself, to welcome surprise and to remember that life is better when you live it Off-Center.

Programming at the DCPA is made possible through the generous support of the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District; Theatre Company sponsors Wells Fargo, Larimer Square and Daniel L. Ritchie, and media sponsors The Denver Postand CBS4. Please be advised that the DCPA is the ONLY authorized ticket seller for Broadway tours and shows by DCPA Theatre Company, Cabaret and Off-Center. Tickets bought through secondary ticket vendors may exceed face value or be invalid.
