April Nickell directs the production for Jaradoa Theater (this is not a production of the Vineyard) that runs through July 18. Rob Broadhurst and Brent Black co-authored the book to I'll Be Damned, which has music by Broadhurst and lyrics by Black.

In addition to Testa (Xanadu), Miller (Xanadu) and Robbins (Thoroughly Modern Millie), the cast also features Emily Borromeo, Nick Gelona, Jacob Hoffman, Alison Luff, Anthony Martinez, Gregory Treco, Tiffany Topol, Daryl Ray Carliles, Stephanie Martinez and Valerie Salgado.

Here's how producers describe the musical: "I'll Be Damned is the story of a friendless, comic-book-loving homeschooler named Louis who receives a seemingly irresistible offer from Satan. Louis' mother is a little late in coming to terms with her son growing up, God seems lost in his vision of a perfect world, and Louis is discovering himself as he attempts to find just one true friend. This fresh new musical comedy asks the universal question: 'Is there a way to make people like you without having to sell your soul to the devil?'"

I'll Be Damned has choreography by In the Heights cast member Luis Salgado and musical direction by Jason Sherbundy. The design team includes Sean Tribble (scenic design), Andrea Varga (costume design), Herrick Goldman (lighting design) and Mike Farfalla (sound design).
