Nunsense A-men!

Friday, January 26 – Sunday, January 28

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!

The Legwarmers:
DC’s Biggest 80’s Retro Dance Party

Saturday, January 27
Doors: 8:00pm

The State Theatre
220 N Washington St
Falls Church, VA

Judging from the huge response we get every time they’re here, a lot of you find the same guilty pleasure we do in reliving the 80s. The big hair. The lacy ankle socks. And the music! You thought it was a forgettable decade, but the Legwarmers (great accessory, great band name) will make you remember each and every hit. Come out and Safety Dance like it’s 1985.
