What You'll Get

A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $37, you get one ticket to see The Divine Sister at the Soho Playhouse (a $75 value).

The Divine Sister collides the comic fantasies of the legendary playwright Charles Busch head-on in the cinematic world of nunnery. This New York Times darling pays spirited homage to the greatest hits of celestial cinema, celebrating some of the most popular Hollywood films about nuns and their preternaturally well-timed musical interludes.

The indomitable Mother Superior, played by Mr. Busch, farcically faces an onslaught of unholy obstacles, trying to keep her convent chaste while avoiding temptation herself. Channeling the melodrama of nun noirs such as Agnes of God, Doubt, and The Da Vinci Code, and swinging a slapstick ruler across the knuckles of happy-go-nun-lucky classics such as The Bells of St. Mary’s and The Singing Nun, this outrageous romp exposes the secret lives of saintly sisters in ways that an inebriated Julie Andrews never dreamed of.

Performances take place at the historic, intimate Soho Playhouse, where every seat threatens to unbuckle each night during Busch's masterful performance. Due to popularity, theater-goers will choose between two preferred performance dates, with confirmation following shortly thereafter.


Past performances of The Divine Sister were reviewed in the New York Times, the Village Voice, and Time Out New York. Nearly 2,000 Facebookers like The Divine Sister.

  • This gleefully twisted tale of the secret lives of nuns — in which the playwright doubles as leading lady — is Mr. Busch’s freshest, funniest work in years, perhaps decades. – Ben Brantley, New York Times
