Heartbreakers in Hell
Music by Joey Contreras
Book and Lyrics by Benjamin Halsted
There are exactly nine ways to break a heart, and there’s a special place in Hell for each type of heartbreaker. This modern day adaptation of Dante's Inferno explores what happens to the souls who commit each sin of Love, intertwining Aligheieri’s medieval mythic Hellscape with the realities of modern-day dating. We follow Dante as he journeys deeper and deeper into the fiery depths, encountering the sinners, monsters, and punishments within each circle of Hell, complete with its own visual, emotional and musically sonic experience. “The path to Paradise begins in Hell'' in this new musical that’s like Company meets a Lady Gaga concert.
