The Divine Sister

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Charles Busch, writer and director of “The Divine Sister,” and Julie Halston, who stars in it, will discuss the play. It serves as an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns—The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary’s, The Singing Nun, and Agnes of God. It's playing at SoHo Playhouse.

Guests:

Charles Busch and Julie Halston

Please ASK CHARLES BUSCH:

If he and Julie are obsessed with the lives of the saints, when is he going to do a play about saints and martyrs?

I'm thinking a mashup of St. Sebastian, St. Augustine, St. Nicholas, St. Joan of Arc, St. Teresa of Avila ... maybe Padre Pio ...
