Just last week, producers Daryl Roth and Bob Boyett announced that a new block of tickets have gone on sale for THE DIVINE SISTER, Off-Broadway's best reviewed new comedy written by and starring Charles Busch. Tickets for THE DIVINE SISTER are now on sale through Sunday, April 30 at the SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street). This past weekend, Liza Minnelli, Molly Ringwald, Cheyenne Jackson, Daniel Davis and others were in the house and BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture the fun! Below, we bring you a look at Sunday's spirited curtain call.

This marks the second extension for the production, directed by Busch's long time collaborator Carl Andress, starring Alison Fraser, Amy Rutberg, Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Walker, and Julie Halston. With the current new block of tickets, THE DIVINE SISTER will become one of the longest running hits of his Off-Broadway career.

THE DIVINE SISTER is Charles Busch's outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns: The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Singing Nun and Agnes of God. THE DIVINE SISTER tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior (played by the legendary Charles Busch). Come join this madcap trip through Tinseltown religiosity from the creator of Die Mommie Die, Psycho Beach Party and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom.

The creative team includes: Scenic and Graphic Design by B.T. Whitehill, Costume Design by Fabio Toblini, Lighting Design by Kirk Bookman, Sound Design by Jill BC DuBoff, Wig Design byKatherine Carr, and Original Music by Lewis Flinn.
