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

Great production overall! Beautifully simple set accented by gorgeous lighting. Performances were very strong overall (despite the fact that Diana clearly lost her voice) and the young couple of Natalie and Henry were almost impossible to look away from. A production that carries value much greater than the ticket price!
Emerson Umbrella is proud to present one of the area’s first local productions of this Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical. It is the story of a mother who struggles with bipolar disorder, and the effect that her illness and the death of her son has on the rest of the family. With book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, this show features some of the area’s most talented performers and musicians and is not to be missed!
