Diva: Live From Hell - Jack Studio Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

STEPHEN Yolland Entertainment are presenting Diva: Live From Hell at the Jack Studio Theatre from Tuesday, March 17 to Saturday, March 28, 2020.

As president of the drama club and star of every school show, Desmond Channing spent most of his short life in the spotlight. When a rival student Evan Harris, a hotshot transfer from New York, challenges his throne, Desmond responds as any diva would, with lethal force…

Now stuck in the ‘Seventh Circle’, Hell’s most squalid cabaret venue, Desmond is forced to relive his disturbing tale of woe. As we join him and his band for their one-millionth consecutive show, Desmond performs with a desperate vigour in the hopes that he can prove he’s repented and can be freed from this eternal, campy torment!

Diva: Live From Hell stars Jak Malone, fresh from his critically-acclaimed performance in Operation Mincemeat (Southwark Playhouse/New Diorama Theatre), as Desmond Channing and the entire company of larger than life characters.

This darkly comic one-man musical, loosely based on All About Eve, has its European premiere with new direction and design from Joe McNeice.

Produced by Stephen Yolland, Diva: Live From Hell has book and characters by Sean Patrick Monahan, music and lyrics by Alexander Sage Oyen, musical direction by Henry Brennan and lighting design by Alistair Lindsay.

Diva: Live From Hell is suitable for ages 16+.

Tickets: £16, £13 concessions – available from the box office on 0333 666 3366 (£1.75 fee for phone bookings only) or online at
