Closed October 22, 2017 -Late Nite Catechism returns to Off Broadway. After more than a 5 year run through 410 cities around the world. It made it’s debut in May of 1993. Late Nite Catechism will play Sundays at 2pm – at Actors TempleTheatre –339 West 47th Street (Between 8th and 9th Avenues)beginning on September 17, 2017.
Late Nite Catechism is, an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back – sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the “students” for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.
