Theater review: THE DIVINE SISTER

October 7, 2010

My review of Charles Busch‘s new play The Divine Sister, playing Off Broadway at the Soho Playhouse, has been posted on

The Divine Sister is the latest in a long line of comedies by Charles Busch that chew up the most familiar conventions of some stage/screen genre and reconstitute them as campy burlesques…None of the cast members will be winning any awards for the subtlety of their performances. Some of their mugging is so extreme, it’s a wonder they don’t sprain their faces. But they’re clearly having a ball clowning around onstage.”
