An unfortunate convent cooking accident causes most of the order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken to die of botulism. Before all of the deceased sisters can be buried, Reverend Mother Superior (Rue McClanahan) buys a camcorder and VCR for the convent - resulting in not having enough money to bury the four remaining sisters (which, by the way, are temporarily being stored in the freezer). In order to raise money to bury the four dead sisters, the Little Sisters of Hoboken (well, what's left of them) put on a riotous revue packed with hilarious, show-stopping song and dance numbers. Written by Katie Richardson (rmcclanahanfan)

Nunsense IS habit forming!
30 June 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

Just like the tagline says, Nunsense is habit forming--and very much so! I've never been a fan of theatre, so I admit that it had to grow on me, but once it did there was no going back! After watching this riotous revue, I am completely convinced that Rue McClanahan should have her own stand-up comedy show. The continuous one-liners roll effortlessly, as do the show-stopping song and dance numbers. The entire show is filled with non-stop laughs, but a few select scenes will have you simply rolling with laughter. Literally. The first time I saw Nunsense, I actually fell off the couch because I was laughing so hard (then I couldn't get back up because I couldn't stop laughing). By the way, that was during the "baking with the B.V.M. scene" when Sister Mary Amnesia presents her homemade book stand (you'll know it when you see it). Even though I didn't appreciate it as much the first time I saw it, Nunsense grew on me very quickly--to the point where I bought the box set, and I've now seen it probably 20 times (not to mention that I've memorized the songs. LOL!). I would love to see a live production of this sometime. Nunsense is a guaranteed must-see for any theatre or Rue McClanahan fan (or anyone who wants a good laugh, for that matter). Rue is fabulous as Reverend Mother Superior; I can't imagine that anyone could do it better. She can sing, she can dance, she can act, and she's absolutely hilarious!
