What the Critics Say About The Screwtape Letters

WICKEDLY WITTY ... it is, if I may say so, ONE HELL OF A GOOD SHOW! Lewis’ topsy-turvy exercises in inverted moral theology were made to be played with lip-smacking relish!”

Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

“A HUMOROUS and LIVELY stage adaptation ... THE DEVIL HAS RARELY BEEN GIVEN HIS DUE MORE PERCEPTIVELY AND ERUDITELY ... clever and satirical ... A large part of what makes it successful is the energetic performance by Max McLean as Screwtape."

Wilborn Hampton, The New York Times

VERY SMART ... Richly rewarding ... EXUBERANT THEATRICALITY...McLean let's It rip!”

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

ENGROSSING and ENTERTAINING ... largely due to McLean’s SILKY, VIPERISH PERFORMANCE as His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape ... loaded with alternately clever and ham-handed commentary on human foibles."

The Boston Globe

“A parable dipped in MORDANT IRONY ... CAPTURES THE DROLL HUMOR with which Lewis constructed his topsy-turvy morality lesson. CLEVERLY IMAGINED FOR THE STAGE, it gives even nonbelievers an amusing primer of modern vice."

Michael Schulman, The New Yorker

SLY, FUNNY, HANDSOMELY PRODUCED ... THE DEVIL IS AN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY ENTERTAINER.

Celia Wren, The Washington Post

ENTERTAINING AS IT IS THOUGHT-PROVOKING ... McLean delivers a commanding performance!”

Frank Scheck, New York Post

HYSTERICAL AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING ... appealing to believers and nonbelievers equally, perhaps because [Lewis] is able to put himself in the place of each. Screwtape appeals not merely for its intellectually supported Christianity, but for its dark humor.”

Orlando Weekly

DEVILISHLY FUNNY ... Lewis' philosophical insights into human nature are cleverly conveyed!"

Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press

“The production with its IMAGINATIVE set and SNAZZY lighting effects is HIGHLY SEDUCTIVE!

Joe Dziemianowicz , New York Daily News
