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.

'Christmas in Hell' comes up short on both counts...Lucifer appears only in the second act, which is regrettable...Williams excels at portraying overconfident egomaniacs...A lot happens, none of it memorable except perhaps to dedi...

It deals with family, especially the tight bond a child ha...

"Unfortunately, a fifty-five-year-old bakery item is fresher than some of the gags on offer here...'Christmas in Hell' pretends to be delightfully transgressive, but that's not pine cones and holly berries you smell, it's desperation...The best thing I can say about Bill Castellino's production i...
