NUNSET BOULEVARD to be Filmed in NYC 7/15-16, Public Invited

The Little Sisters of Hoboken have gone Hollywood in the latest installment of the international musical comedy sensation Nunsense franchise with Nunset Boulevard. The Sisters will commit their exploits to celluloid in a New York City filming of the show for future DVD release, it was announced today by Nunsense creator Dan Goggin. The public is invited to be a part of the live audience for two performances of the show, which will take place on July 15 & 16, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. at the Di Capo Theatre (184 East 76th St. between Lexington Ave. and Third Ave., under Saint Jean Baptiste Church). To reserve tickets, call (212) 489-7050 or email NunsetRSVP@aol.com. Admission is free, but seating is limited.

The cast of Nunset Boulevard will feature Bonnie Lee as Rev. Mother, Bambi Jones as Sr. Mary Hubert, Deborah Del Mastro as Sr. Robert Anne, Jeanne Tinkler as Sr. Mary Paul (Amnesia), Stephanie Wahl as Sr. Mary Leo, and Ron Rogell as Earl-Dean Snedeker (The Bowling Alley pinsetter).

Nunset Boulevard follows the latest exploits of The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama - a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge - and not the famed "Bowl" they were planning on. Things do not go as planned, as The Sisters must contend with announcements from the bowling alley public address system as well as the activity on the lanes. However, The Sisters catch wind of the fact that the famed movie producer, James Todd, is across the street auditioning for roles in his new movie musical, Nunset Boulevard: A Song from the Hart, about the life of Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who became a nun. The Sisters, thinking they are naturals for parts, race off to audition during their show's intermission. Will Hoboken lose The Sisters to the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown?

Nunsense, the creation of Catholic-school-educated author/composer Dan Goggin, premiered in New York City at the Cherry Lane Theater in 1986, where it won four Outer Critics' Circle Awards, including "Best Off-Broadway Musical." It then transferred to the Douglas Fairbanks Theater on 42nd Street, where it ran for over 10 years, and has been presented all over the world in over 8,000 productions (and counting), grossing more than $500,000,000. During its New York run, Nunsense became the second longest running musical in Off Broadway history, eclipsed only by The Fantasticks. For more information, visit www.nunsense.com.

Following the success of the original production of Nunsense, Dan Goggin went on to add to his franchise Nunsense 2: The Second Coming, Sister Amnesia's Country Western Nunsense Jamboree, Nuncrackers: The Nunsense Christmas Musical, Meshuggah Nuns, Nunsensations: The Nunsense Vegas Revue , Nunsense A-Men, and now, Nunset Boulevard.
