Christmas In Hell promises to be everything that one would not expect in a wholesome and happy holiday musical. Get ready for 90 minutes of unabashed satire and black comedy as you follow a father literally going to hell and back, as he attempts to undo Lucifer’s sorcery on his son’s mind.

Why Watch Christmas In Hell

Christmas In Hell has been acclaimed for its fresh take as a holiday production, while still keeping the Christmas spirit alive. The book, music, and lyrics are by the seasoned writer and producer, Gary Apple, who has been involved with shows such as The Simpsons, Get Smart, The Sinbad Show and many others. A surprisingly touching musical comedy, Christmas In Hell focuses on the absurd lengths that people go to for their loved ones. Contrary to a typical holiday musical, Christmas In Hell is not a typical cheerful tale with a pleasant ending. It begins with an 8-year old boy, Dave, being mistakenly taken to hell. Christmas in Hell has made award-winning appearances at shows across the country, such as the New York Fringe Festival and the famous New York Musical Festival. Christmas In Hell is all set to make an appearance at The York as a full-fledged production. The musical is much more naughty than it is nice, and makes for the perfect holiday show, albeit not really the child-friendly type. If you are terribly bored by the wholesome and cheerful holiday musicals that are released every year during the festive season, Christmas In Hell begs to differ and is wildly successful.

The Story

A unique take on a holiday special, Christmas in Hell focuses on the story of Davin, who is mistakenly taken to Hell. By the time that he returns, Christmas is already over. To make things worse, Davin seems to have been possessed by the devil. Davin's father wants to set things right again, and he embarks on a journey to hell to bring back his son's soul. During this perilous expedition, Davin’s father comes across ardent priests, cryptic crones and a gang of eccentric Satan worshippers. Finally, he descends into Hell and meets Lucifer himself. Davin’s father is then forced to make a deal. Can he emerge from hell successful in his venture?
