Put the Nuns in Charge! New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays, Sundays. Continues through June 16 2017

Vicki Quade’s 2005 sequel to her 1993 hit Late Nite Catechism (written with Maripat Donovan), being revived here by Nuns4Fun Entertainment, so closely resembles the original it feels like an alternate draft. This time the protagonist, Mother Superior, is addressing not a catechism class but a group serving detention. Still, the feel of the two shows is very similar—both depend on constant comic interactions between the sister and her audience, and both very gently poke fun at Catholic culture without touching on subjects that might offend anyone. Chicago comedy-scene veteran Kathleen Puls Andrade (who shares the role of Mother Superior with Lisa Braatz in this run) is adept, warm, likable, and very funny. —Jack Helbig
