Nunsense is a hilarious musical comedy about the five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery. The show is a fundraiser by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to cover the buriel costs for the sisters accidentally poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). A book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin, the show originated as a line of greeting cards and further expanded into a cabaret show and eventually into a full-length musical.
The original Off-Broadway production of the show opened up on December 12th, 1985, and ran 3,672 performances becoming the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history. The production has been updated with new jokes, additional lyrics, new arrangements, and a brand new song. The show has been adapted for television starring Rue McClanahan, with six sequels and three spin-offs.
