Bill W. and Dr. Bob is an emotionally powerful and entertaining play. It's played to sold-out audiences around the country, and now it's making its way to the Soho Playhouse. Written by Stephen Bergman and Janet Surrey and based on a true story, this is the amazing and often amusing account of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous. The play artfully illustrates Bill and Bob's journey from the pain and isolation of alcoholism to the hope and inspiration they found in sobriety and helping others. Learn More

Charles Busch’s The Divine Sister is a comic celebration of such Hollywood films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary’s, and The Singing Nun! St. Veronica’s indomitable Mother Superior, played by the legendary Charles Busch (Die, Mommy, Die!, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, and Tale of the Allergist’s Wife), leads audiences on this madcap trip through Tinseltown’s religiosity…it’s miraculous, zany fun!
In addition to Busch, the off-Broadway production will feature the entire original company: Alison Fraser, Amy Rutberg, Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Walker and Julie Halston.
