Subject: Looking for something to do tonight? How about Nunsense?
I know this is a wee bit late notice but I just wanted to let you know
about a show taking place at La Renaissance in East Windsor Connecticut.
That's right, La Renaissance is doing dinner theatre again! This is
their first show for their Grand Re-Opening as a Dinner Theatre. Dinner
includes a choice of Chicken Florentine or Poached Salmon. Doors open
at 6:30pm with Hors D'Oeuvres and a cash bar - dinner is at 7:30 and the
show starts at 9pm.
And the show is great! I saw the preview last night and this show
should be pretty special. If you've never seen Nunsense you really are
missing quite an experience. The premise of the show is this: 5 Nuns
from Hoboken NJ have accidentally poisoned the 44 of their fellow Nun's
with an unfortunate recipe of cold potato soup. They have no money to
bury the Nun's so instead are storing them in a freezer until they can
raise the money. The show is basically their attempt to raise cash for
a proper burial for their Sisters. It is a riot.
Tickets are $39.95 and tickets can be purchase by calling (860)
By the way, their next show (on April 14th) is The Compleat Works of
William Shakespeare (Abridged)!
