In Boston in 2007, the album was adapted into a
Jukebox musicalunder the name "Heaven & Hell: The Fantastical Temptation of The 7 Deadly Sins", with the script written by Jason Slavick. The play followed the album's track listing, with each vice presented through a mixture of dance and a representation of each sin in daily life. Heaven and Hell had a five day run at the Boston Conservatory[ [http://www.boston.com/ae/theater_arts/articles/2007/03/04/temptation_begets_inspiration Boston Globe Article about Play Adaptation] ] .
