"Nunset Boulevard," which stars the adorable Cindy Williams of TV's "Laverne & Shirley" fame, is the latest installment in the well-loved series of "Nunsense" musicals features the ever-popular sit-com star as Mother Superior, a somewhat naïve soul who takes her fellow Sisters (all from the original New York cast) to perform at the famed Hollywood Bowl...or so they believe.
Oops, guess the gals aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer! Alas, they've actually been booked for a show at the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama. But wait! Being good sports and all, they make the best of their circumstances and quickly learn of nearby auditions for a new musical about Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who kissed Elvis and then became a nun. Could this be their big break?
Now enjoying a robust first national tour off Broadway, the Equity production appears center stage at the Spencer tonight, January 29 at 7 p.m. Excellent seats are available for $69 & $66. Call the Box Office at 575.336.4800 or go online to www.spencertheater.com for tickets.
Cindy Williams is best known for her role as Shirley Feeney in the television series Laverne and Shirley, which recently won the TV Land award for "Fan Favorite." In addition she was honored with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame (2004). In April she won Best Actress at the L.A. Comedy Film Festival for the Indy film "Stealing Roses." Cindy is happy to be back with her cast mates from "Nunsense" as she reprises her role as Reverend Mother at the Spencer and dozens of other grand theaters across the country. Cindy's other stage credits include Mrs. Tottendale in "The Drowsy Chaperone" (Broadway); "Deathtrap" with Elliot Gould (National tour); "Moon over Buffalo"; and "The Odd Couple" with Joanne Worley. Cindy's film credits include "Travels with My Aunt" directed by George Cukor, "The Conversation" directed by Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas's "American Graffiti" for which she received a British Academy award nomination in 1974 for Best Supporting actress. Unfortunately she was beat out by Ingrid Bergman, and evidently still wonders how the heck that happened! See the star work her comedic magic at the Spencer January 29th!
