On Friday, we went ot see the play "Nuncrackers". It is based almost entirely on the broadway play "Nunsense". There were only five cast members, playing a priest and four nuns. It's about a group of nuns trying to put on a televised Christmas show in the basement of the convent. Mishaps abound, including getting drunk while making the fruitcake recipe. It was remarked that if Eve had put the apple in a fruitcake, Adam would have never eaten it, and we would all be living in Paradise. (Speaking of getting drunk on fruitcake, in my next post I will relate the disaster that happened with my own wedding cake.) The nuns dressed up as The Village People for one number, and they also put tutus over their habits and performed the Nuncracker Ballet. We had front row seats, which is why I was able to get such good pictures. The cast interacted with the audience and gave out silly prizes. I didn't get a door prize, but I had already been given the gift of an evening of laughter, better than any of the prizes.
"Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you, and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in heaven."
