Naughty and Packed with Laughs, The Divine Sister by Charles Busch Opens May 10
The Divine Sister, playing in our Mildred M. Montague Circle Theatre May 10 - 25, is an outrageous comic homeage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. But make no mistake - The Divine Sister is unlike any of those sweetly pious films. Ridiculously naughty and packed with salty language, The Divine Sister is a comedy strictly for adult audiences. The Divine Sister 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 senstive 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.
This madcap trip through Hollywood religiosity evokes the wildly comic but affectionately observed theatrical style of Charles Busch, the creator of the wildly popular Psycho Beach Party, which was produced at the CTC five years ago.
The Divine Sister stars Justin Bridges, Scott Dunlap, Jim Eernisse, Judy LaMance, George Quick, and Heather Thompson. Scott Dunlap and Stacy Helton co-direct. Stacy Helton and Bryce Lee Wynn share stage managing duties.
The Divine Sister plays Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 May 10 - 25. Tickets are $18 and are available at 267-8534 or can be purchased online. Opening night May 10 and Girls' Night Out May 24 (sponsored by Brewer Media and The Pulse) feature free adult beverages with snacks pre-show. Come early and join in the "Nun Run" to win cool prizes!
"This gleefully twisted tale of the secret lives of nuns ... is Mr. Busch's freshest, funniest work in years, perhaps decades." - The New York Times
