TV icon Cindy Williams (“Laverne & Shirley”), seen on Broadway in The Drowsy Chaperone, will head the cast as Mother Superior. Williams previously played Mother Superior in the Meadow Brook Theatre presentation of the original Nunsense.
Additional casting and tour dates will be announced shortly.
Nunset Boulevard, according to press notes, "follows the latest exploits of The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama - a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge - and not the famed 'Bowl' they were imagining. Things do not go as planned, as The Sisters must contend with announcements from the bowling alley public address system as well as the activity on the lanes. However, The Sisters catch wind of the fact that the movie producer, James Todd, is across the street auditioning for roles in his new movie musical about the life of Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who became a nun. The Sisters, thinking they are naturals for parts, race off to audition during their show’s intermission. Will Hoboken lose The Sisters to the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown?"
A special DVD of Nunset Boulevard has been filmed and will be released this fall.
The tour is being produced by Scott M. Robbins and booked by Gurtman and Murtha Theatricals.
