Nunsensations: The Nunsense Vegas Revue


Sign up for our newsletters Subscribe


This sweet vaudevillian sequel to writer-director Dan Goggin's popular Nunsense features feathered fans, a chorus line, musical references to the Village People, and plenty of vaguely naughty rim-shot jokes. Five nuns (three of the actresses sleepwalk through their roles, while Deborah Del Mastro and Jeanne Tinker explode out of theirs) are putting on a Vegas revue to earn a $10,000 donation from a parishioner for their school. Nunsensations is fluff, and it's expensive, but it's also entertaining, family friendly, and a lot cheaper than going to Vegas. Through 3/5: Wed 1:30 and 7:30 PM, Thu 7:30 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 2:30 and 8 PM, Sun 2:30 and 7 PM, Drury Lane Theatre Water Tower Place, 175 E. Chestnut, 312-642-2000, $35-$48.
