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.
See it if If you want a show that tries really hard to be funny.
Don't see it if If you want a York, usual high quality production. If you want a good Christmas show.
See it if ur in the mood for a silly, unpolished, holiday-adjacent show that aspires to be South Park/Simpsons but lands more like middling SNL skits.
Don't see it if you've enjoyed York's typically reliable, high-quality productions & expect the same from this overlong, trite, awkward, unedited misfire.
See it if you're curious about the title, to discover the work of a composer-lyricist-librettist, enjoy nonsense plots & overwrought characterizations
Don't see it if you like musicals with peppy numbers, memorable music & mature lyrics, don't like foul language & broad depictions of Satan & Charles Manson
See it if you are looking for a show about Christmas, but don't have any sentimental attachment to the holiday whatsoever. Set is very clever.
Don't see it if Foul language and potty humor offend, especially at this time of year. It's irreverent, and unnecessarily so. Castellino kept it alive!
See it if I love York Theater. They never disappoint until now. This was hell to watch. The humor was not funny. Poorly casted, bad script.
Don't see it if I thought this was going to be like a over the top Christmas story that was funny... so not funny and seemed amateurish. York what happened?
See it if all of the other holiday-themed shows are sold out through the end of 2018.
Don't see it if you're expecting this one to align with the York Theatre's typically high caliber of stage offerings.
See it if You like South Park, Book of Mormon or The Producers, but trying too hard to be funny and clever and not quite making it.
Don't see it if You didn't like The Carol Burnett Show. It's like a really loooooong musical parody on a comedy show that doesn't know when to stop.
See it if you are tired of the same old song in holiday entertainment (but is different necessarily good?) Well-directed, strong cast.
Don't see it if you avoid shows that use Charles Manson as a major plot point and profanity indiscriminately. Lyrics sometimes score, music disappointing.
See it if You like off-color, non-traditonal Christmas shows. You're interested in seeing new musicals. You want a gr8 performance from Elijah Rayman.
Don't see it if You want modern and/ or edgy humor:lots of passe jokes & not as subversive as it thinks it is. You want a better bad musical ala Mormon...
See it if A clever enough sendup of the Christmas season with plenty of irreverence & scatalogical language.
Don't see it if Don’t expect a compelling story - cartoonish characters, little relatable emotion. But there are lots of laughs & is still previewing.
See it if you'll enjoy good performances in a not very good show. Good one-liners, but no coherence. Performances 85, costumes 85, music 75, book, 50.
Don't see it if you expect something better than a good, but not great SNL skit; don't enjoy watching stereotypes of priests & nuns speaking w/Irish brogues
See it if you’re curious of the concept of the story & accept that they’re in previews with room for many improvements or if you support works by York
Don't see it if you expect quality production with on point execution.
See it if you enjoy a darker Christmas tale - some funny humor - if not complete.
Don't see it if you need a solid show. This has potential but needs more productions to get the kinks out . Early for off-broadway run.
See it if You want a MILDLY funny holiday diversion. Couple of really great numbers/performers, Was the first preview, so HOPING for improvements!
Don't see it if You want a tight, funny show. A lot of jokes beaten to a pulp. Way too long - could be trimmed to 90 min. Should toss a lot of the filler
See it if This is a dark comedy that Has a bit of an edge. It’s like Book of Mormon meets White Christmas.
Don't see it if You are easily offended and don’t enjoy dark humor shows like Avenue Q and Book of Mormon.
See it if You want something that has a number of funny moments and is overall entertaining and very silly.
Don't see it if You want something that is somewhat sophisticated and you like a little more in theater than to just be entertained
See it if Don't. Spend your time seeing anything else well reviewed on here. The singing is the only good part, but not the songs.
Don't see it if You want a funny clever witty story, it's bland and cliched. You want good musical numbers, they're cheesy and pointless.
