The “Little Sisters of Hoboken” are back in this hilarious fourth installment of the successful “Nunsense”
series. During the Nunsense Vegas Revue the Sisters are performing at the Pump Room in the Mystique Motor Lodge for another laugh-filled benefit. What follows is the most star-studded, sequin filled, feather dancing show not soon forgotten. The side-splitting night proves what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas as Mother Superior and her talented Sisters belt out songs like “Sin City Sue,” and “Black and White with Her Money on Red.”
Reprising their roles are Debra Humphrey
of Houston, PA as Mother Superior, Deena Hower
of Pittsburgh as Sister Robert Anne and Gretchen Breslawski
of Butler as Sister Mary Paul (Amnesia). Joining the cast are Roseann Rosnick
of Brentwood as Sister Mary Hubert and Megan Flannery
of Butler as Sister Mary Leo. Directing “Nunsensations”
is Tom Madden
