We ate at the Beehive, right next door. We had a delicious meal- menu has burgers, duck (delicious). Reservations needed.

The Beehive, directly next door, has great food and drink...a little pricey but perfect for a night out on the town.

The cast was great! Off to a slow start, but soon some very funny spoofing. Would make a good Harvard hasty pudding show. Lots of good one-liners.

Totally over the top, campy, and fun with moments of unintentional hilarity (when props didn't appear where they were supposed to) adding to the fun.

A great time overall, tho a couple of the actors came across as not very good, not campy --...continued

Lots of laughs in this rather risque show. Not suited for those who are shocked by off-color language. Many laughs and great acting.

More Information


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.
