Off-Broadway Buzz - Richard Dreyfruss in Heschel; Charles Busch's Divine Sister

How long has it been since we’ve been privy to seeing Richard Dreyfuss on the New York stage? (“Quite a while” is rather an understatement.) However, from through the 28th you can catch Mr. Holland sans opus in playwright Colin Greer’s Imagining Heschel -- a new work exploring private conversations between Cardinal Augustin Bea and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel on one of history’s most volatile religious issues -- at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

Finally, in the do-yourself-a-huge-favor department, I recommend hitching your rosary and wimple (my very favorite nun accessory) to playwright/actor Charles Busch’s (The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife; Psycho Beach Party; Die, Mommie, Die!) critically acclaimed new Off-Broadway comedy The Divine Sister -- a pitch-perfect homage to the sacred tradition of classic nun flicks. And I’m not alone in my giddy devotion to Busch’s latest salute to his favorite Tinseltown genres. I know for a fact that actor Linda Lavin (Alice) is a devoted follower, having seen it more than once. Plus, the night I attended, Lily Tomlin was also in the crowd screaming with laughter watching Busch as Mother Superior alongside one of his favorite costars, the lovely and hilarious Julie Halston.
