Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Quirky

See it if you want really silly, no thoughts needed show

Don't see it if you are a fan of quality. This could have been much better, the premise is great, but it sadly didn't live up to the premise

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if You liked Forbidden Broadway. You are interested in women's rights, gay rights, really clever lyrics. Good musical theatre acting & singing.

Don't see it if You prefer serious or experimental theatre. This is good old fashioned musical comedy.

CurtainUp
October 28th, 2015

"The main problem with the piece is that its conceit wears thin after the first 15 minutes. What you end up watching is a non-stop pageant of notorious women who find themselves in the halls of hell, with their life baggage and unsettling memories...If there's anything eye-opening here, it's that hell isn't easy to spoof. 'Hell's Belles' clocks in at 90 minutes, but felt hellishly long. "

Theater In The Now
October 25th, 2015

"'Hell’s Belles' is one of those shows that a good pitch draws you in but when you’re experiencing the material you almost have to wonder have you actually died and gone to hell…The idea is fun but Leys’ book is insufferable…Director John Znidarsic had a lot of cheap laughs to go for in Leys’ libretto and he went for every single one. With the content not quite up to par, Znidarsic’s arsenal was limited…What 'Hell’s Belles' has going for it is in knows what it is."

The Huffington Post
October 25th, 2015

"It's an entertaining romp with a simple premise…A medley of musical genres is neatly performed and parodied all resulting in a devilishly good time...Whether sending up Eva Peron or the bitchiness of Hollywood divas, 'Hell's' Belles' is a zippy musical revue. The hardworking crew, directed by John Znidarsic, may be in hell, but the entertaining romp is earthbound fun."

"Think of all the vixens, villainesses, and just plain bad girls you know. They are all meeting over at the Elektra Theatre in Times Square in Bryan D. Leys’ 'Hell's Belles.' And a devilishly good time can be had by all...'Hell's Belles' is a clever concept with lyrics to match. It’s a red-hot campy cabaret that is scandalously sinful and full of forbidden fun."

Backstage

For a previous production

"They don't just take their audience to hell; they put them through it...A ticket is a contract between a patron and the creative team of a play or musical promising good money for at least the attempt at presenting a good show. Those in charge of 'Hell's Belles' should be punished for breaking that contract. I can suggest where they should be sent."

For a previous production

"If you ever feared a future in Hell, this is the show to see...Fancy, flashy, frivolous, fashionable... If you like Salome and the 'Hoochie Koochie', then 'Hell’s Belles' is the show for a night of fun and foolery."
