Essen, on the corner, was a nice self serve place with a huge variety of foods, all available for takeout or to go upstairs with to sit at tables.

Saw Divine Sister in previews, then again last night. It has only gotten better. Hilarious with great performances across the board. Charles Busch is a NY treasure.

Description

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.
