Brilliantly produced and memorably performed. I absolutely loved the Screwtape letters. Anyone who has any appreciation for CS Lewis and modern theater should consider this a MUST SEE. This was extremely entertaining and memorable. I've...continued

I purchased these tickets the day of the event and got great seats, however, The Majestic really doesen't have any bad seats. My niece and I had a wonderful experience. The performance was phenominal. I am sorry we didn't go to both performances.

Description

The performance runs 90 minutes with no intermission and is recommended for audiences ages 13 years old and older. 

Now in its second smash year, The Screwtape Letters’ National Tour has delighted capacity audiences in 50 major cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Salt Lake City, Orlando, Seattle, Dallas and Houston. Over 200,000 have seen this production on tour, which continues to attract a national following. 

The Screwtape Letters creates a topsy-turvy morally inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, where God is called the “Enemy” and the devil is referred to as “Our Father below.” The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, Satan’s top psychiatrist (due to his profound understanding of human nature), and his slavish creature-demon Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon, Wormwood, on how to ruin the life and damn the soul of an unsuspecting human on earth. Screwtape is played by award-winning actor Max McLean. 

Along with The Chronicles of Narnia (including The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe), The Great Divorce and Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters is still one of Lewis’ most popular and influential works. The book’s piercing insight into human nature and the lucid and humorous way Lewis makes his readers squirm in self-recognition made it an immediate success. When first published in 1942 it brought worldwide fame to this little-known Oxford don including the cover of Time Magazine.
