Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.

Musical Hell: Man of La Mancha

Time for an only slightly delayed Musical Hell Review!  Sort of.

Okay, here's the deal kids. The YouTube posting is currently in Dispute Purgatory right now. Normally videos have been viewable during this process, but that's not the case here.  So, in the meantime, you get a shiny Google Drive link for your viewing pleasure.  Hopefully the actual review will be up shortly; if not, this will do.  Either way, enjoy!
