In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Enjoyable zany play, with the usual Sondheim sound. The performers were very good to excellent, but they weren't miked so I couldn't pick up the words on a good deal of the patter songs. The Lyric Stage is a pleasant venue, and if you park at the 100 Clarendon garage you're only about a block away- very convenient. For this play our Goldstar seats were very good.
