I thought the show was great. Brought back some memories from my grammar school. The setting/set design was perfect for the show. As for the interaction part of the program, the "sister" was convincing enough to have two "youngins" put their gum...continued

I took my parents to see this as a Christmas gift and it was PERFECT! Our whole family grew up in Catholic schools and the "nun" on our night was spot-on - incredibly funny and surprisingly knowledgeable about the Catholic church. I'm normally...continued

I traveled with three other ladies to Chicago for the weekend and was able to see the One-Nun Show. Our group, aged between 47 and 62 which included two Lutherans and two Catholics, laughed and laughed and laughed! What a great show!

It doesn't matter what religion you are, this is a for sure laugh out loud! This is very interactive so be prepared. Look forward to seeing another show in the series.

It was funny, but since it was based on experiences at a Catholic elementary school, some parts were hard to relate to. It was a one character show with a 15 minute intermission. The actress who played the nun was fabulous.

Since we have the new parking restrictions in Chicago it is bettere to just pay the $10.00 for valet parking. We looked for parking up to two blocks away and everything was metered or special permit parking. The valet service was excellent and...continued

The horrors of catholic school. Not funny, just re-hashes the terrors of the "hard time" of catholic school.

The performance was not quite what I expected. The performer for the evening did a great job, but the atmosphere was kind of quiet and awkward. I did learn quite a bit about Catholicism, but the performance did seem to drag on a bit. I was...continued

The venue was well received by the group. We felt that the actress playing the nun did an excellent job. Good interaction with audience.

This was fun! I am Catholic and went to Catholic schools for 12 years. It was also fun to be part of the show as a "student". I would not pay full price for ths show, though.

very funny - our "nun teacher" was very quick and witty - and had a great memory for who was in her class. The theatre is close to the red line - very convenient!

A bit of a disappointment. . . . Sister was a little too nice to elicit laughs from the audience. This show can be a stitch when there is chemistry between Sister and the audience. . . . unfortunately there weren't many sparks flying last night.

A fun show, though not as good as I expected from reading the other reviews. Definitely better to go on the weekend with a bigger crowd. "Sister" is able to create a lot of good material by riffing with the audience. Especially enjoyable for...continued
