"A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant – LIVE! – exceptionally directed by Sean Pollock is a miraculous marvel, indeed tongue-in-cheek satire with a child-like smirk, full of tremendous songs sung tremendously, humor uplifting, even with the laughing at ourselves inevitably harmonizes hope to still dance with brooms." -Marcello Rollando,

Unattended Baggage and the TV Writers Studio at LIU Brooklyn teamed up to produce an NBC Live! Style musical broadcast of the OBIE Award-winning cult classic A VERY MERRY UNAUTHORIZED CHILDREN'S SCIENTOLOGY PAGEANT - LIVE! an unforgettable celebration of Kyle Jarrow’s (based on a concept by Alex Timbers) brilliant reenvisioning of a traditional Christmas pageant featuring E-Meters, Xenu, and L. Ron Hubbard’s DIANETICS.

The musical was taped Off-Broadway at the 14th St Y for a live in-studio audience on November 5th, 2022.
