PHOTO CALL: Charles Busch, Alison Fraser and Julie Halston in Busch's Divine Sister

News   PHOTO CALL: Charles Busch, Alison Fraser and Julie Halston in Busch's Divine Sister The Divine Sister, the Charles Busch comedy that takes a whack at pop-culture nuns — from the singing to the socially-conscious —  plays a commercial run starring Busch at the SoHo Playhouse.

Here's how the show is billed: "The Divine Sister is an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. Evoking such films as 'The Song of Bernadette,' 'The Bells of St. Mary's,' 'The Singing Nun' and 'Agnes of God,' The Divine Sister tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior (author Charles Busch) who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing 'visions,' sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows." It's a "madcap trip through Hollywood religiosity" that "evokes the wildly comic but affectionately observed theatrical style of the creator of Die, Mommie, Die! and Psycho Beach Party."

 

Here is a look at the show:

Directed by Carl Andress, the play features Busch, Alison Fraser, Amy Rutberg, Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Walker and Julie Halston.
