Nunsense is a musical comedy with a book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin. The show was later adapted for television, starring Rue McClanahan. Here is a clip from the movie in which Sister Mary Amnesia sings about the pleasures of being a nun. We've also included a scene with McClanahan:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
