Sweet & Lucky

Third Rail Projects was commissioned by Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Off-Center program to create a new immersive experience for Denver, Colorado. The resulting Sweet & Lucky, created by Zach Morris, invited audiences into a mysterious antique store and plunged them into a labyrinth of dreamlike encounters. Guests followed performers through  intricately designed environments, into intimate engagements, and witnessed a series of seductive and haunting flashbacks. It was a 360-degree, multi-sensory experience, including cocktails custom designed by Williams & Graham’s nationally recognized mixologist Sean Kenyon.
