Special guest stars include Ken Page as Sister Mary Wilhelm and Lara Teeter as Father Virgil. Rounding out the company are Rachel Abrams as Sister Mary Luke and Michele Burdette Elmore as Sister Mary Brendan.
"This is a crazily brilliant and wonderful cast," said Muny executive producer Mike Isaacson in an earlier statement. "Dan Goggin and Matt Lenz have promised us serious nun mayhem for The Muny, and this convent contains some great, great comic actors. I can't wait to see them in this show…We’re particularly blessed that Phyllis Smith is returning to her home town to join us as Sr. Julia, Child of God…About two years ago, in a chance meeting, she told me 'I'd love to be your Mary Wickes!' How could I resist?"
Nunsense Muny Style!, according to press notes, "follows the Little Sisters of Hoboken as they come to The Muny to raise money for their order."
The production also features scenic design by Steve and Sam Gilliam, sound design by Jason Krueger and lighting design by Rob Denton. Michael Horsley serves as the musical director, and the production stage manager is Nevin Hedley.

Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
