VIDEO FEATURE: Ladies of Sister Act Become "Real HouseNUNS of New York" in Playbill Series
23 Aug 2011
After taking on the "Jersey Shore" gang with the cast of The Importance of Being Earnest earlier this year, Playbill has commissioned the divine ladies of Sister Act to spoof the popular reality TV series "The Real Housewives of New York" in a new video series launching Aug. 23.
With the help of some "Real Housewives" transcripts, Sister Act cast members Jennifer Allen, Marla Mindelle and Sarah Bolt take on such "Housewives" icons as LuAnn "The Countess" de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord in the first part of Playbill Video's new series "The Real HouseNUNS of New York."
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.
