Take this, doubters
Here's one thing you can say about Nunsense: It's habit-forming. (The show's opening number is called “Nunsense is Habit-Forming”). OK, bad joke, especially if it needed explaining—but there are plenty of more-delicious groaners in this musical comedy about the five surviving members of the Little Sisters of Hoboken. They stage a variety show to raise money to bury four of their number killed by tainted vichyssoise served up by the order's cook, Sister Julia, Child of God. The original New York production was the third-longest-running off-Broadway show in history. And it has become a staple of community theater groups across the country. Take that, doubters!
