Charles Busch, Alison Fraser and Julie Halston Reunite for The Divine Sister in L.A.
By Adam Hetrick
Charles Busch, Alison Fraser and Julie Halston reunite for the L.A. Theatre Works presentation of Busch's acclaimed Off-Broadway comedy The Divine Sister, which begins performances July 11 at the James Bridges Theater.
The play had its premiere in 2010 at Theater for the New City, prior to transferring to an extended 253-performance Off-Broadway run at the Soho Playhouse.
The LATW presentation, which runs through July 14, reunites original director Carl Andress (Die Mommie Die!) with Off-Broadway cast members Busch as Mother Superior, Fraser as Sister Walburga and Halston as Sister Acacius. The cast also includes Emily Bergl as Agnes, Maxwell Caulfield as Brother Venerius and Juliet Mills Mrs. Levinson.
Here's how it's billed: "An outrageous homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns, The Divine Sister tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior (Busch) who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent."
All LATW performances are recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."
