When 52 Sisters die, accidentally poisoned by the cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, the remaining nuns of The Little Sisters of Hoboken put on an outrageous variety show to raise money for the funerals. Featuring talents from their pre-convent lives, a circus performer nun, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn, a wannabe ballerina nun and a nun with amnesia sing, tap dance and entertain their way through an incredible show. With an audience quiz and lots of fun surprises, youíve never seen nuns crack wise like this. A totally outrageous show ďwith a hysterical anything-goes sense of fun,Ē says the New York Times. An international phenomenon with over 5,000 productions worldwide, Nunsense is a hilarious must-see for everyone.

by Melissa Giordano - Sep 28, 2016

It is actually uncanny - and kind of funny - how this story still resonates today; petty arguing amongst congress and how divided 'leaders' can be are emphasized in this production. Obviously we've come far since then but, at the same time, it seems not far at all. (more...)
