About the show

A wild, irreverent, and surprisingly touching musical comedy about the absurd lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love. More…

Looking for a sweet, wholesome holiday musical? Well, this ain’t it! On Christmas Eve, little 8-year-old Davin is mistakenly taken down to Hell. When he returns, not only has he missed Christmas, but he is devilishly changed. To set things right, his father embarks on a bizarre odyssey that eventually leads him down to Hell itself where he makes a wager with Lucifer he can’t possibly win.

Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you are not afraid of slightly different interpretation of thetraditional Christmas story, open to some fun, and not too concervative

Don't see it if Taking stage performance too serious, do not want child to offer friendship to Lucifer and to see female actress playing God.

Also The whole cast is WOW (Lori Hammel, Zak Risinger, others)! They all ar... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Irreverent, Great singing, amusing, clever songs, Silly & enjoyable

See it if The singing was excellent, many great very enjoyable song that were perfectly performed.

Don't see it if You won't enjoy a silly show about the devil, Hell, etc. The one song I did not enjoy was Selfie. It wasn't funny and was very strange.

Also Elijah Rayman age 10 does a great job with his songs, Lori Hammel too.... Read more Read less

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you enjoy clever, funny musicals. This one is very different from the musicals we've seen before but we enjoyed most of the lyrics a lot.

Don't see it if jokes about Christmas and religion in general offend you or if you can't handle F-words even when used in a comical way.

Also We saw it at the 5th public performance, still in previews, and accord... Read more Read less

See it if You like irreverent comedy. This was extremely clever. Costumes are amazing! Production values great! Great writing, acting, singing, etc.

Don't see it if You are bothered by raunchy dialogue and the occasional F word. You are religious & alternative interpretations of heaven and hell offend.

Clever, Entertaining, Irreverent, A romp

See it if you like irreverent comedy that pokes fun at institutions like Christmas, religion, or Hell itself. Cute songs, and a star turn or two.

Don't see it if you are so religiously conservative that poking fun at Christmas or Hell or the Catholic church is offensive to you. Or you want "serious."

Funny, Quirky

See it if Like watching a Simpsons Halloween Special and Christmas musical hybrid: full of satire and songs of silly jokes rooted in family values.

Don't see it if Plot gaps (sometimes highlighted as the joke), satire, sacrilegious jokes, and profanity (esp. F word) aren't your thing. Still developing.

Also Free ticket from Show Score.

Simpson's writer brings offbeat wit to musical telling story of how father rescues son from devil's clutches

See it if good satire of Christmas specials & religion; songs w clever lyrics; amusing over-the-top performances

Clever, Quirky, Entertaining, Fluffy, Naughty

See it if You want some fun mindless fluff. Interesting staging, they do a lot with a little (I always like to see that), plus a couple great songs.

Don't see it if You’re expecting a perfectly polished fully conceived show. This is a show from the Fringe Festival that’s gotten the star treatment.

Funny, Great singing, Shows promise, Clever puns

See it if Throw everything into hell’s kitchen sink and call it a holiday musical. I say it’s a funny kind of fruitcake. Warm fuzzy ending.

Don't see it if You actually love fruitcake. You are easily offended by sacrilegious humor. The story is weird.

Ambitious, Clever, Edgy, Great acting, Disappointing

Cute, Work in progress, Lacks depth, Clever songs
