New Harmony Theatre: Nunsense

Book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin
July 13, 2018 - July 22, 2018

Here it is, the original Nunsense, the second longest running Off-Broadway show in history (10 years, over 3600 performances). Audiences can't get enough of these five wacky Little Sisters of Hoboken, using their talents to raise a bit of the cash necessary to hold funerals for those in their order who have succumbed to eating some bad vichyssoise. Don't let the note of tragedy fool you. This musical is a hoot and a half! The Mother Superior is an ex-circus performer who craves the spotlight, and her little company of performers could not be more ridiculous as they sing and dance in habits while steering a careful course between the irreverent and the madcap. Audiences love these crazy characters, such as Sister Mary Leo, who wishes to become the world's first ballerina nun, and Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head. Nunsense has spawned several sequels, but Dan Goggins' original is still going strong on stages all over the world. What's that? You don't think nuns can be funny? Let New Harmony Theatre make believers of you!

The jokes were in poor taste and very poor in quality. The theme was entirely INSULTING. We left at intermission and are very hesitant at returning, if this is the quality of play offered.
