While we may aspire to live with the gods in the heavens, hell is a LOT more fun. This satirical operetta takes the stuffing out of Greek mythology and proves that nothing is sacred in this wickedly funny and naughty romp that will inspire you to kick up your heels and join us in its famous can-can.
