CHICAGO, Feb. 20, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS, the provocative and wickedly funny theatrical adaptation of the C.S.

The National Tour of THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS kicked off after a hit nine-month run at the Westside Theatre in New York City. Prior to that, THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS was a sold out hit in Chicago and Washington D. C. where it ran for a combined eight months.

Associated Press calls THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS "Devilishly funny!" The Chicago Tribune describes THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS as "Very smart...richly rewarding...exuberant theatricality!" The Washington Post says THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS "clearly delights people of faith and even skeptics and followers of non-Christian faiths...it boils down to a mystery about good and evil and the production makes it an entertaining conundrum to ponder." The Boston Globe raves that it is "Engrossing and Entertaining!"
