Summary

A crumbling convent school is on the verge of insolvency, when a young postulant begins to display strange heavenly powers. And when a dashing film executive arrives to buy the rights to her story, the Reverend Mother refuses to put profits over prayer. Playwright Charles Busch made his name with genre-skewering hits like Psycho Beach Party, Die Mommie Die, and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, which L.A. Theatre Works recorded in 2007. This time around, we present Busch’s high-voltage spoof of religious melodramas, starring three of the principal players from its original 2010 Off-Broadway run. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring:Emily Bergl as AgnesCharles Busch as Mother SuperiorMaxwell Caulfield as Jeremy/Brother VeneriusAlison Fraser as Sister Walburga/Mrs. MacDuffieJulie Halston as Sister AcaciusJuliet Mills Mrs. Levinson/TimothyDirected by Carl Andress. Recorded by L.A. Theatre Works before a live audience.
