About the Show

DIVA: Live From Hell! is a hilarious and heart-wrenching one-person musical that dives into the tumultuous life and afterlife of Desmond Channing, the ultimate high school drama king. With a book by Nora Brigid Monahan and music and lyrics by Alexander Sage Oyen, this show has racked up accolades, including Best Lead Performance in a Musical at the Offies 2023 and Best Musical at the Everything Theatre Awards 2023.


Meet Desmond Channing, played by the incredible Luke Bayer. Desmond’s reign as dramaclub president comes to a screeching halt when a new kid, Evan Harris, tries to steal his spotlight. Desmond’s response? Well, let’s just say it’s a little…extreme. Now, he’s stuck in the Seventh Circle, Hell’s grimiest cabaret venue, reliving his story night after night. This twisted tale, inspired by the classic film All About Eve, is a darkly comedic love letter to Broadway, full of wit, revenge, and fabulous performances.
