Nun More Black

It's not every day you come across a musical comedy is based on a line of greeting cards. (Hallmark sure doesn't market a glittery mailer for the occurrence, anyway.) But such is the case with Dan Goggin's 1985 Off-Broadway hit Nunsense.

Through Saturday, May 18, Almost Famous Theater Company runs with the sisterly storyline, which incorporates characters who originated on said cards. See, the surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken need to raise some dough – enough to bury the 52 other women of God who bit the dust because of tainted vichyssoise. So, they host a talent showcase.

Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., May 12, 4 p.m. Starts: May 10. Continues through May 18, 2013
