This event is a collaboration of two "Nunsense" veterans, Rob Misko and John Baldino, who have been involved in productions of the show for over two decades. Baldino produces and Misko directs.

No production team outside of NYC has more experience with “Nunsesne” than the creative staff at Our Cabaret Productions based in Carbondale, Pennsylvania.

Misko directed the first non-Equity production of "Nunsense" in the United States, and has directed the show and two of its sequels for more than 20 years.

He even appeared on stage with creator Dan Goggin in the show’s 25th Anniversary National Tour.

“What really makes this show work is that it’s real,” says Misko. “Presenting the Sisters as real people, and not campy caricatures is the essence of the show. John and I understand the humor of the nun because we know so many Religious Sisters so well. We were both taught by nuns.”

“I have a tremendous respect for nuns,” adds Baldino. “I’ve worked with Sisters my entire adult life, and that’s what makes me love ‘Nunsense.’ Working with Robby (Misko) makes it even better as we have the same vision for the show, and are true to Dan Goggin’s original intention.”

"Nunsense" is the story of the Little Sisters of Hoboken and their fundraiser variety show.

The show stars Misko as Reverend Mother and Baldino as Sr. Mary Hubert, a role he has played over 75 times.

Completing the cast are Aleni Mackarey as Sr. Mary Leo, Christine McGeachie as Sr. Mary Amnesia, and Amber Kerestes-Blatt as Sr. Mary Robert Anne.

The Sisters take the stage on March 25 at 7 p.m. and March 26 at 2 p.m. at St. Matthew’s Parish Center, 100 Seymour Avenue, Edison, New Jersey.

Tickets for the show are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and available at, by calling the 24/7 toll-free box office at 1-800-838-3006, or in person after every weekend Mass at St. Matthew’s. Seating is limited, so advance tickets are highly recommended.

"Nunsense" is produced by Our Cabaret Productions through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., New York, NY.
