A dark, sexy and funny tale about the temptations we face when we find ourselves in a room with the devil... and what happens when we gamble with our soul.

When faced with your demons, what are the choices you'll make to save yourself? What do you want? What do you deserve? What can you get away with?

Awesome 5 star show! ⭐️ This was extremely moving and made me want to shout out! Excellently delivered. Strong and believable story and characters. Everyone after the show talking about what they would do if they were the real characters in this story - a true testament to why I love The Fringe!

Can't believe how small our audience was, this appears to be a real overlooked gem that deserves to be seen by way more people! Played with real commitment and feeling, intelligence and vulnerability. Bravo to the actors for infusing this somewhat accelerated/compressed whirlwind narrative arc with believable and empathisable emotion, bringing depth and poignant, moving moments to what could in less skilled hands have ended up being fairly short and superficial scenes.

Freakin loved this show!

Will Westray 96 days ago

Wonderful piece, from the acting to the writing and direction. It's a show that asks questions that I, in turn, ask myself. Great show, can't miss this one!

Four Stars-Devil Of Choice is moving and heartbreaking! LAByrinth theater company has done it again with a riveting performance, of love, and betrayal...A must see!

Kristina Poe 96 days ago

**** four stars! Sexy and disarming, a true look at marriage and relationships with some of the best actors on stage (from LAByrinth Theater Company!) who delve into their characters with every ounce of themselves, taking you on a ride of ecstasy and heartbreak and what it means to love someone.

This very adult themed drama was quite good. It was a small audience, and I believe I ended up chatting afterward with everyone who attended...and everyone liked it. Interesting story, well directed, good acting, nice set design, and great music. Definitely a solid show worthy of attending.

Devil of Choice (***)
This story tries to update Faust’s bargain, by transferring it into a modern story of adultery. The problem lies in that in the original story good and evil were clear, but here the pain of the two women and inconsistency of the devil husband belie the attempt. Without the false comparison, I think the story of three complex people would have been much stronger.

This was the 17th most enjoyable of the 43 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website:

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 84 days ago

A meditation on determinism, you will emerge questioning whether autonomy is merely a facade, but also horny, very horny. Founded upon the Goethe’s renowned Faust, Devil of Choice is not an exact parallel, but damned close.  Reminiscent for some, we begin as the unwilling students of a self absorbed lecturer,...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 96 days ago

Framed around the personification of Goethe’s Faust, a sinister figure adorned in black strides purposefully on stage to proclaim that to strive is divine, because movement is life. To stop and settle, is to rot in hell forever. And these themes, of giving in to temptation, of accountability, of the...

Written by the actor playing Delia, Maggie Diaz Bofill, the pedigree of the cast shows time and again. The experience of each allows the subtlety and interplay between each character to develop fully as each scene is allowed to build and breathe with correct timing. The whole piece has subtlety...
