This original production sends modern-day New York City to hell. As Dante, a foreigner, makes his way across a bizarro urban landscape with the help of his hipster guide Virgil, he finds that not everything is as it seems. Over the course of 24 hours, Dante and Virgil encounter dozens of the peculiar creatures that populate this nightmarish city and eventually come face to face with Lucifer herself.
Inferno is rewarding for fans of the classic poem and new-comers alike. Whole scenes and characters are transplanted directly to the stage with a unique, very American twist. Like Dante's original, it is a political satire that calls out specific, recognizable individuals and assigns them a grotesque punishment in their own circle of hell.
