TV star Cindy Williams ("Laverne & Shirley") will star as Mother Superior in the production, which has dates announced through February 2013. Williams previously played Mother Superior in the Meadow Brook Theatre production of Nunsense and was seen on Broadway in The Drowsy Chaperone.
She will be joined by Bambi Jones as Sr. Mary Hubert, Christine Mild as Sr. Robert Anne, Jeanne Tinker as Sr. Mary Paul (Amnesia) and Stephanie Wahl as Sr. Mary Leo.
Nunset Boulevard, according to producers, "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?"
As previously announced, Nunset Boulevard was filmed in Manhattan in July 2011, and arrived on DVD May 29 from Kultur Film and Video.
