Rodolfo and Amelia are a passionate pair of Buenos Aires cabaret singers and lovers, who also happen to be on the lam from the law. Taking off for the Turkish desert, they hook up with a native who plays a mean guitar, realizing that it does take three to tango when you're on the run. Argentinian theater great Rafael Bruza's tango-inspired comedy gets its U.S. premiere from Teatro de la Luna as a Spanish-language production with English surtitles. Learn More

I suppose the show would have more meaning for those who attended strict Catholic parochial schools. I did not find it humorous, though certainly biting. At the point that the sister allowed former students to express views contrary to Catholic dogma, the play lost touch with reality; and when she started shooting them, it ceased to have any interest. The acting was okay, and the staging was imaginative all the way down to design of the program.
The Obie Award winning comedy centers around a fanatical nun who comes face to face with a quartet of her traumatized former students. _ The Village Voice_ wrote, “Sister Mary… is a hysterically funny, bitter, anguished, out-of-control moral comedy” and Newsweek called it “ferociously funny.”
The show runs one hour, with an optional nightly talkback.
This event is recommended for those age 14 or older.
Directed by Joe Banno and featuring Cam Magee as Sister Mary Ignatius.
