Nunsense  by Dan Goggin


October 20, 21, 22, 27, 28 at 7:30 pm / October 29 at 2:00 pm.


Winner of the Outer Critics’ Circle awards for the best off Broadway musical and for the best book and best music and seen at London’s Fortune Theatre in 1987. Nunsense is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery, the rest of the sisterhood having succumbed to botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia, Child of God. The remaining “Little Hobos” parade their talents at a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at break-neck speed. [ ]
