"Nunsense: A-Men!" at Arlene's Broadway on Buffalo
"Nunsense: A-Men" is the all-male version of the hilarious stage musical "Nunsense." Think of it as "Mrs. Doubtfire enters the Convent."
The story revolves around the convent of the ”Little Sisters of Hoboken,” only five of whom are surviving thanks to tainted vichyssoise served at dinner. They start a greeting card company to pay for the 52 burials, only the Reverend Mother blows some of the proceeds on a plasma TV for the convent, leaving them without enough money to bury the last four nuns, who are stored in the freezer. They decide to stage a variety show to pay for the remaining burials.
Played totally straight, a whole new layer of comedy surfaces in this version with lines like “The guys in the old neighborhood still can’t believe I became a nun!” To quote the New York Times: “A change of habit, boy oh, boy!”
