BWW Reviews: NUNSENSE Irreverently entertains at The City Theatre in Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - May 17, 2017

The somewhat obscure 1985 musical NUNSENSE, is now playing at The City Theatre on the east side of Austin. Holding the title of the second longest-running Off-Broadway show in history, NUNSENSE will delight all audiences, but has the best entertainment value for the catholic-lite audience. Taking place in Mount Saint Helen's School auditorium in New Jersey, the Little Sisters of Hoboken were once a missionary order that ran a leper colony on an island south of France. After their mission went sour, they travel back to their convent in Hoboken, looking for a fresh start. The children of God then discover Sister Julia has accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents with a bad batch of the french soup vichyssoise. The nuns then raise enough money to bury all the late sisters through selling, what would be assumed, religiously quipped greeting cards. However, Mother Superior used part of their earnings to purchase a big screen television. Leaving her compatriots with four of the fifty-two sisters frosting in their freezer, until they can find the money to properly bury them. This premise causes the ladies to host a variety show in Mount Saint Helen's School auditorium to raise the money to put their Frozen friends to rest. The five remaining collection of sisters have individual character traits as defining as the saints of the Bible. Loaded with audience participation, tap numbers and nuns with an odd perspective of their religious values, NUNSENSE is an entertaining vaudevillian-style musical with songs large and small.

BWW Review: TITANIC THE MUSICAL at Broad Brook Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - May 14, 2017

Whenever one thinks about the RMS Titanic, often the first images that come to mind is the massive vessel - the largest ship of its time that was "unsinkable", which met an unthinkable fate on its maiden voyage across the sea. But what is truly remarkable about the fateful voyage are the stories of those on board, from the third class immigrants in the depths of the ship, yearning for a better life in America all the way up to first class, which represented a true "who's who" of American millionaires and businessmen. These stories, the stories of the human beings who boarded the Titanic never to return (or return the same), are on full display at the Broad Brook Opera House in the Opera House Players' current production of Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's TITANIC THE MUSICAL.
