"In Hell with Jesus, Ivo Dimchev brings his distinctive style to a biting critique of the contemporary theater industry and society, using humor, irony, and political incorrectness as masks. Dimchev portrays himself as an aging stage diva holding auditions for his next musical, showcasing his control over the auditioning performers. Through his absurdly transgressive audition routine, he raises provoking and political incorrect questions and melodies. The minimalist choreography and dramaturgy serve to heighten the commentary on the current state of art and society. "In Hell with Jesus" Dimchev, pushes the limits of the conventions of theater and music entertainment, seamlessly blending songs, dance, and trivia with subversive and provoking messages and songs. 

“Ivo Dimchev captivates in "In Hell with Jesus" through his humorous and insightful portrayal of the mechanisms of show business and the inherent human flaws that come with it. Rather than glossing over the unpleasant aspects of the industry, Dimchev unflinchingly exposes them, packaging the performance in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. It's no surprise that Dimchev continues to deliver with each of his shows, his talent is truly admirable”
