Late Night Catechism Canceled
With a headline like that on a night like this, I realize I run the risk of sounding a bit like a snow cancellation, but noâ€”the ever-popular Catholic comedy starring a man playing a nun to an audience/classroom was scheduled to be staged at the Turner Hall Ballroom in January. The classy venue wouldâ€™ve been an interesting place for the half stand-up routine/half monologue . . . but itâ€™s been announced that the entire 01/13 â€“ 01/25 Turner run of the show has been canceled due to â€śtechnical difficulties.â€ť
Any questions can be directed to the Box Office at 414-286-3205.
(The continued, long-term success of this show is understandable considering the general popularity of Catholicism . . . but the single-person format renders a show that lacks the kind of inspired script Casey Kurtti developed for his 4-person comic drama Catholic School Girlsâ€”a really vivid production of which has turned out to be one of Boulevard Theatreâ€™s more memorable stagings of the past few years. Covering much of the same ground as Late Night Catechism in a much more accomplished fashion, Kurttiâ€™s 1989 comedy really deserves more stage time nationwide . . . )
