To quote Charles Busch's character "Mother Superior," "Jeremy, it's important to believe in miracles....even if you have to create them yourself" is the perfect way to sum up my feelings about "The Divine Sister." It's the eternally enjoyable miracle created by the one and only Charles Busch and directed by Carl Andress.
Charles Busch has once again hit all the right notes with "The Divine Sister." On March 1, 2011, I attended "The Divine Sister" yet again. I have seen this show about 4 or 5 times now and it's still one of the most fun-filled evenings of theatre I have attended! (click here for my previous review) It's 90 minutes of laughter (with 2-3 minutes of delightful song), that always leaves me wanting more. It's stellar cast consists of the playwright himself, Charles Busch, along with the hilarious Julie Halston, Alison Fraser, Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Walker, and Amy Rutberg. This cast has chemistry, stage presence, and most of all knows what it means to perform in a comedy! Each cast member has their moment to shine brightly and show off their comedic chops. While "The Divine Sister" just celebrated their 200th performance, Charles, Julie, Alison, Jennifer, Jonathan, and Amy continue to perform as though the show just started, giving it their all which is why each time I go to "The Divine Sister," I feel as though I'm seeing it for the first time because these performers know how to keep it fresh and original!
If you haven't experienced "The Divine Sister", then I highly, highly suggest you take yourself down to the SoHo Playhouse at 15 Vandam Street in NYC and treat yourself to a night of eternal enjoyableness! Click here for tickets!
