Winner! Four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Off Broadway Musical in its original New York production, this hilarious international hit was revived in New York with a male cast Nunsense A Men!
The show is a fund raiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Up dated with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements and a brand new song, this zany musical has been videotaped for television starring Rue McClanahan as the Mother Superior. NOTE: Nunsense A-Men (#56080) is a rented version available in manuscript only and not for purchase.

NUNSENSE was first produced at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City on December 12, 1985. It was directed by Dan Goggin.
