About the show...
In what could easily be subtitled "the rest of the story," Dan Goggin's Nunsense II: The Second Coming takes place six weeks after the sisters have staged their first benefit.
The sisters are back presenting a "thank-you" show for all the people who supported them in the past. But now, they're a bit slicker, having been "bitten by the theater bug." Things get to off to a rousing start as the sisters sing Nunsense, the Magic Word, but before long. chaos erupts.
Two Franciscans come to claim Sister Mary Amnesia (who has won the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes) as one of their own. At the same time the nuns hear that a talent scout is in the audience to see them strut their stuff.
From the riotous bingo game run by Sister Amnesia to the hilarious duet, What Would Elvis Do?, to the rousing finale, There's Only One Way to End Your Prayers and That's to Say Amen!, this show will have you rolling in the aisles!
An irreverant yet utterly inoffensive and tuneful take on all things Catholic, the original Nunsense (and now its sequel Nunsense II - The Second Coming) is a mega-hit across the U.S. and even abroad. The original show has been around in several incarnations since its unveiling in Greenwich Village in 1985.
Dan Goggins, the man behind the show as both writer and director, properly sensed the fluidity of his material and was unafraid to make changes where warranted. The result was a full-blown stage show that went on to become the second-longest-running hit in Off-Broadway history!
