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 SPECIAL EDITION: Jem and the Holograms w/ That Long-Haired Creepy Guy!

Hey everyone, remember when there was a Jem and the Holograms movie for about two minutes a few years back? Well, there was, and I'm taking it to task with the creator of the Jem Retrospective (and many other wonderful things,) That Long-Haired Creepy Guy! Check out more of his work here!

And don't forget the usual schedule is interrupted until May, so that I might do real-world thingies and also bring you a special riffing event next month!

Know the Score--Musicals 101: Hadestown

Heya folks, it's taken me a while to get on the Hadestown bandwagon, but since it's coming to Broadway soon I figured now was time to jump on. And you get a video out of the results!

Expect the schedule for the next month or two to be a bit discombobulated, as I deal with real life commitments and extra-special projects. But I have some really cool things in the works for you, so it will (hopefully) be worth the wait!

Musical Hell Review: The Pebble and the Penguin

It's February, which means love and romance and really, really bad attempts to capture the feeling of love and romance--like Don Bluth Studio's last (and almost least) film, The Pebble and the Penguin!
