The Divine Sister is an outrageously funny sendup to the heyday of Hollywood “nun” movies, recalling such films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary’s, The Sound of Music, The Singing Nun, Agnes of God – with a nod to Da Vinci Code!
St.Veronica’s Mother Superior (played by the incomparable actor, comedian and drag queen, Steven Polito), is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way she is embattled with myriad kooky characters. A young postulant clairvoyant, a wrestling coach nun, a waspy Jewish woman, an Albino Monk, a schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun spy from Berlin and a former lover intent on luring her away from the convent. This irreverent, righteous romp will have audiences praying for more. Hold onto your wimples, it’s going to be a bumpy night! At Stageworks, 41-A Cross Street; 518.822.9667.
