The fourth installment in playwright Maripat Donovan’s lauded Late Nite Catechism series, Sister’s Easter Catechism: Will My Bunny Go to Heaven? flings open the curtain on the titular Sister, who singlehandedly helms the comedic class. Through audience interaction, the Sister answers Easter-related queries about pet heaven, the Easter Bunny, and Peeps, including such brain teasers as “Why isn’t Easter on the same day every year?” Her quick wit and a hint of irreverence serves her well as she chides misbehaving audience members and invites others onto the stage for quizzes.
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. "The auditorium is in its chaste way," architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater's website, "the handsomest of any Boston playhouse."
