BCCT performs ‘Nunsense’ for second time
January 29, 2003
It’s not out-of-the ordinary for a convent to raise money. But it is when the money being raised is for the burial of four food-poisoned, frozen nuns. “Nunsense,” a musical comedy about five nuns who have to rely on their singing and dancing to get them through their economic hardships, returns to Baldwin in February with a familiar cast. “It’s a funny show, a very funny show,” Linda Ballinger, producer, said. “Nunsense,” written by Dan Groggin, is the story of the five remaining nuns of the Little Sisters of Hoboken, whose convent lost 52 nuns after eating tainted vichyssoise, served inadvertently by Sister Julia, Child of God.
