We enjoyed the play and found ourselves identifying (to an extent) with the actors. It was quite an "I remember that" evening.

Even though I did not go to Catholic grade school (though I did go to catechism classes), I have friends and relatives who did, and could identify with Rudy's doubts. (I did make my communion and confirmation).

Quotes & Highlights

“Absolutely enchanting…a little bit of heaven.” —Chicago Tribune


It’s 1959 in Buffalo, New York – Elvis, drive-ins, and The Honeymooners made life fun and simple. Not for the Pazinski household though! Polish-Catholics Chet and Ellen live above their tavern with their four teenagers, each questioning family values in their own mischievous ways. And when wise-cracking 12-year-old Rudy questions the Roman Catholic Church to ruler-cracking Sister Clarissa before his confirmation, the outcome is a hilarious yet touching comedy that would even make the Cleavers at a loss for good advice!

Rating: PG, some mild adult language.
