I'm surprised to hear that there are still tickets available for this week's performance of Nunsense, which stars All in the Family star Sally Struthers!

Here's the information about the show:
Emmy-Award Winner Sally Struthers joins the cast of Nunsense for its 25th Anniversary National Tour!

This zany comedy tells the story of the one-of-a-kind Little Sisters of Hoboken as they cope with the unexpected funerals of 52 of their sisters who were accidentally poisoned by the cook. The sisters are suddenly faced with enormous expenses and must find some way to raise the funds! Get ready to giggle as the Little Sisters of Hoboken put on a variety show to raise funds for the funerals, utilizing their own peculiar talents.

The New York Times applauds Nunsense as “a hail of fun and frolic!” Emmy-Award winner Sally Struthers leads a phenomenal cast as Reverend Mother Regina, lending her musical talents and undeniable comedy to the role. The show features show-stopping musical numbers, tap and ballet dancing, an interactive audience quiz, and endless comic surprises that are sure to have the audience rolling in the aisles and singing along.
