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 Review: A Chorus Line

It's a few days late, but here it is: one of the most disappointing stage-to-screen projects ever, A Chorus Line!

A reminder that there will be no Know the Score this month, so I can actually get my schedule back on track.  If it gets enough on track, I'll try to post a commentary or something, but no promises.  See you in a few weeks!

Musical Hell Review: The Nutcracker-The Untold Story

Hey everybody, sorry for the delayed release--my computer died around Thanksgiving and needed replacing.  But the wait is over, and we're ringing in the holidays with The Nutcracker: The Untold Story!  It's the classic Christmas tale featuring Nathan Lane as Albert Einsten, bad Tim Rice lyrics, and Nazi rats. You heard me.

Know the Score: Hamilton (Musicals 101)

So just about everybody in the theater-geek world has been talking about Hamilton lately, and guess what?  So am I!  What can I say--this show is freakin' awesome.

Musical Hell Review: Burlesque

Here's a movie about a small-town woman trying to make it in the big city.  No, not that one.  Or that one.  Or...look, it's Burlesque, all right?

MHTV: The Secret of Mulan (1,000 YouTube Subscriber Celebration!)

To celebrate reaching 1,000 subscribers on YouTube, I did a thing.  Here it is: a riff of The Secret of Mulan!  It's the story of China's most famous cross-dresser, told by insects.

(To those of you who voted for Hunchback, it was a close call, so I'll keep that one in mind for later!)
