The Sisters of Hoboken were originally scheduled to bring their hilarious antics to the Lyric in March, but an unscheduled pandemic forced them to return to the convent for six long months. Keeping these gals contained was no easy job while the Lyric Theater made some modifications to keep everyone safe!
Bustling with energy, the enterprising sisters took to the stage for the first showing Thursday, Sept. 10, interacting with the audience during the performance (from a safe distance, of course). The show will continue throughout the weekend and there are plenty of tickets left for the Saturday, Sept. 12 showing at 7 p.m. and the Sunday, Sept. 13 performance at 2 p.m.
“Nunsense II: The Second Coming” is the sequel to the wildly popular “Nunsense” created by Dan Goggin and is one of seven musicals featuring the Sisters of Hoboken. All seven Nunsense musicals are now streaming on BroadwayHD.com
The show opens with the musical production number Nunsense: The Magic Word. The song is followed by a high-speed recap of what happened at the first show, narrated by Sister Mary Hubert. The program proceeds with Sister Mary Paul-(she is the nun who had been hit on the head with a crucifix and was known as Sister Amnesia. She had remembered that she was a former country singer who had won the publishers’ Clearing House Sweepstakes and made the nuns instantly rich at the end of “NUNSENSE I” running a bingo game in which something goes wrong and the entire audience wins at once.
