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.

At the Source: Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow

Welcome to the newest addition to the Musical Hell-verse: At the Source!  This series will take a look at the material which inspired your favorite shows.  So why don't we start with that Hamilton thing everyone's talking about?

And be sure to let me know if there's a source you'd like me to do a (semi) deep dive on!

  1. Would you possibly do Chicago or Cabaret? Those are my favorite musicals as well as Kander & Ebb classics. Chicago was based off true stories and most notably the silent film (I think of the same name) and Cabaret was based off of the 30's novel Berlin Stories and its adaptations (play and movie) I Am a Camera. You may not read this or want to do it, but if you do notice this, thank you for reading it.
