Actor's Theatre of Charlotte: - Charles Busch; dir: Matt Cosper.
Direct from a heralded Off-Broadway run at the SoHo Playhouse, The Divine Sister is an outrageous comic celebration of nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. Evoking such films as The Sound of Music, The Bells of St. Mary’s, The Singing Nun and Doubt, it tells the story of St. Veronica’s indomitable Mother Superior who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing “visions,” sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows! It’s madcap, miraculous, zany fun!
