NEW YORK  •  Theater for the New City  •  Ongoing

The Divine Sister is a comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. Evoking such films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary’s, The Singing Nun and Agnes of God, The Divine Sister tells the story of St. Veronica’s indomitable Mother Superior (author Charles Busch) who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing “visions,” sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.

Directed by Carl Andress

Alison Fraser, Julie Halston, Amy Rutberg, Jennifer van Dyck, Charles Busch  &  Jonathan Walker
