Summary, etc.: A crumbling convent school is on the verge of insolvency, when a young postulant begins to display strange heavenly powers. And when a dashing film executive arrives to buy the rights to her story, the Reverend Mother refuses to put profits over prayer. Playwright Charles Busch made his name with genre-skewering hits like Psycho Beach Party, Die Mommie Die, and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, which L.A. Theatre Works recorded in 2007. This time around, we present Busch's high-voltage spoof of religious melodramas, starring three of the principal players from its original 2010 Off-Broadway run. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Emily Bergl as Agnes; Charles Busch as Mother Superior; Maxwell Caulfield as Jeremy/Brother Venerius; Alison Fraser as Sister Walburga/Mrs. MacDuffie; Julie Halston as Sister Acacius; Juliet Mills Mrs. Levinson/Timothy; Directed by Carl Andress. Recorded by L.A. Theatre Works before a live audience.
