Bridge Rep's immersive and intimate cabaret-style production of the musical Hello Again follows 10 nameless but recognizable types of characters through 10 sexually intimate scenes of intense pleasure and/or emotional pain throughout the 10 decades of the 20th century. Inspired by the controversial play La Ronde, which explored sexual morals in the late 19th century, Michael John LaChiusa's update was nominated for a number of Drama Desk Awards in its initial Off-Broadway run -- in fact, the total was lucky number 10. Bridge Repertory Theater of Boston is in the midst of its first successful season, and has already been recognized with several nominations from the Independent Reviewers of New England. Learn More

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.
