NUNSENSE

Genre: Comedy, Musical
Written and Directed by Dan Goggin

The 25th Anniversary Revival On its original stage!

NUNSENSE follows the riotous escapades of five nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken who realize that one of their own, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned to death 52 fellow nuns in the convent while the quintet was off playing Bingo.  The show's musical numbers include "Nunsense is Habit-Forming," "So You Want to be a Nun," "The Dying Nun Ballet," "Baking with the BVM" and "Holier Than Thou."

Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Off-Broadway Musical, Nunsense has become a must-see international phenomenon. It made its Off-Broadway debut at Cherry Lane in 1985 and returns this summer to commemorate its silver anniversary. Join the Sisters of Hoboken as they put on their infamously funny talent show that will surely tap dance its way to your heart.


 


About the Company: Cherry Lane Theatre

Cherry Lane provides a nurturing community for playwrights and theater artists, both seasoned and emerging, to work together in revealing the social consciousness of a changed world. In this way, we serve the cultural needs of our larger community of New York City while developing a dedicated, returning audience.

Cherry Lane consists of three distinct theater spaces: The 179-seat Mainstage; the 60-seat Studio Theatre; and the 90-seat Cherry Pit (formerly the Bank Street Theater), which Cherry Lane has recently begun leasing. The three spaces provide unique performance experiences for audience and artist alike - they also allow for myriad programs and plays to occur simultaneously, both from within Cherry Lane's own producing or from its busy rental calendar made up of numerous small to midsize nonprofit companies around New York City.
