Quite simply, ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL ! But of course, would we expect anything less from both Charles Busch and Varla Jean Merman ?!
But, equally as impressive and hysterical was the 'Boston talent' whose performances just added 'topping' to the delicious farce of the entire play.
Really, a 'Don't Miss !'
Varla Jean Merman, Paula Plum and Kathy St. George star in The Divine Sister, an inspired homage to nearly every Hollywood film ever made about nuns. Written by Charles Busch, the comic genius behind such classics as Die, Mommie, Die!; Psycho Beach Party, and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, this gleefully twisted tale tells the story of an indomitable Mother Superior trying to cope with a young postulant experiencing visions, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.
