Nunsense
by Dan Goggin
Directed by Mark Britton
October, 2008
Synopsis
Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Off Broadway Musical in its original New York production, this hilarious international hit was revived in New York with a male cast Nunsense A Men!. The show is a fund raiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Up dated with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements and a brand new song, this zany musical has been videotaped for television starring Rue McClanahan as the Mother Superior.

"A hail of fun and frolic! Wacky and outrageous with a hysterical anything goes sense of fun!" N.Y. Times.

"You don't have to be Catholic to love Nunsense!" Entertainment Tonight. "Inspired madness! Go see it!" Jewish Post and Opinion.

"Guaranteed to lift your spirits.... Very, very funny." National Catholic News.
