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.

BWW Review: The Engeman's 1776
by Melissa Giordano - Sep 28, 2016

In seeing the Tony winning Sherman Edwards/Peter Stone musical 1776, we get an interesting account of the events leading up to the signing of the Declaration Of Independence. 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...)

BWW Interview: Nothing Short of Miraculous: A Conversation with E. Faye Butler
by Carla Maria Verdino-SŁllwold - Jun 7, 2016

'What they did is nothing short of miraculous! I know because I was there as a friend, a colleague, an artist. I was there in that room as the magic was happening!' Award-winning actress E. Faye Butler is speaking of the Fulton Theatre and Maine State Music Theatre, of her old friends from their Rockford, Illinois days, Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark, and of the entire creative team and cast of the new chamber music version of the musical Ghost in which she now stars. The Bruce Joel Rubin-Glen Ballard-Dave Stewart show which opens at Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick on Thursday, June 9, is a reprise (and New England premiere) of the newly minted chamber adaptation presented at Lancaster's Fulton Theatre on April 21, 2016, after a year-long development process. One can feel the excitement and electricity in Butler's presence and her comments about this play with music which, she believes has given new life to both the original 1990 Jerry Zucker movie starring Demi Moore, Patrick Swayze, and Whoopi Goldberg and the 2011 stage version. 'E. Faye is a force of nature!' MSMT Managing Director Stephanie Dupal proclaimed when she saw her in the premiere. (more...)
