NextStop Theatre Company
269 Sunset Park Drive
Herndon, Virginia 20170
Performances through February 11
When a cooking catastrophe kills off most of the Little Sisters of Hoboken convent, the five remaining sisters put on an outrageous variety show to fund the burial of their deceased loved ones. With zany personalities, eye-catching costumes, and extreme hilarity, Nunsense is a heavenly musical full of devilish comedy! Did we mention that all five nuns are in Drag? You won’t want to miss this incredible performance, because sometimes you just need a good laugh and to be reminded that gender is a construct and Drag is an art form!
