Move over Sister Act! When it comes to habits and Hail Mary’s, you’ve got competition from playwright Charles Busch’s The Divine Sister — stirring up hallelujahs at Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, May 31-June 22. Actor Ashby Blakely stars as the leading lady, Mother Superior, in this heavenly production directed by Matt Cosper. Superior, who was a sassy reporter before she confined herself to the convent, faces the dreadful task of building a new school while dealing with the other sisters, each of whom has their own secrets lurking behind the cloister walls. There’s a young postulant who is experiencing “visions,” a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, an unusual nun visiting from Germany, suppressed sexual urges among most of the nuns, and a former suitor intent on luring Superior away from her vows. No-nonsense nuns? We think not!
