second (or third) time through The Second Coming

Nunsense II opens at CenterStage on Oct. 7.

Kathie Doyle-Lipe will be playing Sister Mary Hubert, Mistress of Novices this time, she says, "because I'm a little old to be playing the novice [Sister Mary Leo] and be rollerskating in."

Doyle-Lipe played Leo "about 15 years ago" at the Civic in a production that moved to the Met with Jean Hardie (as she will be once again) playing Sister Mary Regina, the dreaded and hilarious Mother Superior.

Hardie has performed in every incarnation of Nunsense that has ever played in Spokane -- the original and its three (four?) sequels.

So how are rehearsals going, Kathie?

"Really well. Troy [Nickerson] has been coming in kinda quietly one day a week -- because he's busy with My Fair Lady, you know -- so Jean and I are doing the rest for now. We're re-directing it. And it's going to be listed as 'Original choreography and direction as conceived by Troy Nickerson' -- or something like that."
