NUVO review
2.5 stars

Giving Satan a chance to strut his stuff and crack wise about human self- righteousness and hypocrisy amounts to a kind of theatrical chestnut. Writers and performers have been trotting old Ned out to offer ribald commentary about human hypocrisy for centuries. In Ben Asaykwee’s iteration, the Devil’s a lounge singer. This is a promising set-up for an unevenly paced show that, nevertheless, has its moments  thanks largely to Asaykwee’s limber jazz singing. The opening, which uses topical references to make an alarmingly convincing case that this has been one hell of a summer, is particularly effective. - David Hoppe
