New 'Nunsense' to Premiere at W.B.T.; Plans for TV & DVD

Dan Goggin's Nunsensations - The Nunsense Vegas Review will run at Westchester Broadway Theatre from Jan. 25th through March 3rd, with an opening night set for Feb. 1st. 

The show features book, music, lyrics and direction by Dan Goggin.

"With the Nunsense shows, the creator, Danny Goggin has lifted the human spirit as he has made millions laugh. Nunsensations - The Nunsense Vegas Revue is the sixth variation in the popular Nunsense series," state press materials.

"For the last 21 years, the Little Sisters of Hoboken have entertained audiences in theatres around the globe, making Nunsense an international household name. It started as a little cabaret show and it just grew and grew, until it turned into this international phenomena. Not only has the show performed in theatres all over the world, it also has been translated into 26 different languages."   Other editions of Nunsense include Nunsense, Nunsense ll, Nunsense Jamboree!, Nuncrackers!, Meshuggah Nuns, and Amen!. 

Nunsensations! – The Nunsense Vegas Revue "takes place in 'real time' in the Pump Room Lounge, high atop the third floor of the Mystique Motor Lodge in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Sisters have been told by a Hoboken parishioner that he would donate $10,000  to their school if the Sisters would go to Las Vegas and perform in a friend's showroom. Reverend Mother has serious doubts about appearing in "Sin City." However, after convincing Rev. Mother 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas," the sisters plan their program…. and off they go to the 'City of Sin' for more hilarious adventures!"

The conductor of Nunsensations is Leo Carusone, who did all the original orchestrations and arrangements for the show. The set is designed by 3-time Emmy nominee Barry Axtell, who created all the original sets for all the Nunsense shows. The set was adapted for WBT's stage by George Puello and Steven Loftus, with costume design by Rich Hamson, lighting design by Rich Latta, sound design by Johathon Hatton, and lighting design by Andrew Gmoser.

The WBT production will star the world premiere cast which will include Bonnie Lee as Reverend Mother Mary Regina, Bambi Jones as Sister Mary Hubert, Carolyn Droscoski as Sister Robert Anne, Jeanne Tinker As Sister Mary Paul (Amnesia), and Carrie Keskinen. Stephanie Wahl will be the Swing Cover for the Nuns.

The cast has just completed taping the show for television, and "it should be available on DVD in the very near future. The plan is for airings on PBS next year." The television production features the Westchester cast as well as a cameo appearance by Georgia Engel, who is currently starring in The Drowsy Chaperone on Broadway.
