The Divine Sister is a wonderful comedy that pays tribute to the nuns who have appeared in Hollywood movies, such as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary’s, The Singing Nun and Agnes of God.
The play tells the story of St. Veronica’s dominant, Mother Superior, who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburg convent. During the process, she contends with a young “postulant” who sees visions, other nuns who experience sexual hysteria, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious visiting nun and a former suitor determined to lure the young postulant away from her vows.
With a madcap journey through Hollywood religiosity, this play is wildly funny, and evokes the theatrical style of its creator, Charles Busch of Die Mommy, Die! and Psycho Beach Party. In the starring role of Mother Superior is New York actor and fabulous drag star, Sutton Lee Seymour. Allen McMullen lends his superb directing skills to make this a truly fine theatrical experience for Puerto Vallarta audiences.
Don’t miss this outstanding opportunity to see a top notch play performed by genuine professionals. Sometime the “divine” can appear in unusual ways! Enjoy the fun, the nonsense and the irreverence of The Divine Sister!
