Los Angeles, CA To some, it is a mythological place that, like Atlantis and/or Lemuria, claims the attention and interest of a fantasizing fewÂ to still others, it is allegoryÂ . a place that transcends temporal/spatial reality while teaching ethical behavior and serving as a silent sanction against the trespassing of social moresÂ . And, even to those who claim membership within the community of Faith, the concept of Hell remains an inquiry unanswered.
For more than a decade, however, Marcia P. SamuelsÂ epic musical stageplay, ÂTell Hell I AinÂt Comin!Â has, for audiences throughout the United States, had an impact that is far removed from the realm of entertainment. Utilizing Shakespearean dialogue; anointed, multi octave-range singers; highly expressive choreography; cleverly crafted humor; and a large cast of professionally trained, multicultural actors, international playwright Marcia P. Samuels travels her audiences into a believable and highly dramatic sojourn into Hades.
With the creative tool of the vignette, Ms. Samuels introduces characters that are characterized by everydayness and chronicles the life events that resulted in their assignment to Hell. Perhaps it is the Âparallel- nessÂ of these charactersÂ lives with those of our family members, friends, and even ourselves that intrudes the concept of Hell into the mind of audiences in a manner that is so powerful that numerous individuals have concluded that if a moral life is the insurance that protects against the possibility of an afterlife spent in the throes of pain and misery, behavioral alterations are in order.
And so, ÂTell Hell I AinÂt Comin!Â becomes more than a dramatic, musical stageplay, It transmutes into a therapeutic experience. Countless numbers of testimonials have been received from past audiences that speak of lives changed and behaviors altered. Consider the following accounts: Six months after seeing the play, a sixteen-year old girl told her peers, ÂSomething in my heart has changed. I donÂt know what it is, but I know the change is going to lead me to a different way in life. The change started the night I saw, Tell HellÂ I AinÂt CominÂ.Â A prostitute received a free ticket, saw the play and gave up prostitution. A drug-addicted mother of five became clean after seeing the play. Then there are those who simply say it gave them a "wake-up call" to the way they were living their lives.
