Dirt-poor New Hampshire farmer Jabez Stone is down on his luck. It's one thing after another until finally, he swears he would sell his soul to the Devil for a little relief! But when the 10 years are up and Mr. Scratch comes a'knockin on the door, Stone hires legendary attorney Daniel Webster to plead his case. The Devil and Daniel Webster argue back and forth, hot and heavy - with no holds barred. Will Webster save his client's soul? Or will he lose his own? Veteran storyteller, Lawrence Howard, spins this tale on his home turf.
With The Devil and Billy Markham, Daniel Webster is not coming to save the sorry ass of down-and-out country songwriter Billy Markham; Billy has to rely on his own wits if he is going to save his immortal soul.When Lucifer offers to roll the dice again -- double-or-nothing --Billy jumps at the chance, only to see his loved ones join him ineternal damnation and his own suffering multiply. Will Billy find away to beat the Devil? Critics and audiences alike have championedJonah Weston's extraordinary performance of Shel Silverstein's complexwork.
Complimentary devil's food cake, red hots, and other devilishly good snacks will be served. Wine, beer (21+) and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.
