Life is a game of luck, a dazzling show! The latest installment of the comic musical series "Nunsense" has met the Korean audience as "Nunsensation".
As the title hints so, the story is about the protagonist nuns doing something sensational, which ends up being something that may not be that sensational at all. In other words, the meaning of the musical is whether the event is indeed a "Nunsensation" or just a "Nonsensation".
[Interview : Yang Hui-gyeong, Role of "Reverend Mother"] "The musical is about nuns who go to Las Vegas and perform in a charity show. You can imagine how much courage the nuns would have needed to muster up to go to a place like Las Vegas".
Five nuns travel to Las Vegas after agreeing on a deal that they would receive a US$10,000 donation for performing a show. Thus begin their efforts to build a well for thirsty African children.
The "Nunsense" series is now in its 20th year in Korea, with each installment becoming a huge hit, including "Nunsense", "Nunsense-Jamboree", and "Nuncrackers".
This is the first time that the latest version of the "Nunsense" series, which is "Nunsensation", is being performed in Korea. A mix of dance, song, theater, and humor, the show challenges the audience with the unsettling concept of nuns in Las Vegas.
[Interview : Yang Hui-gyeong, Role of "Reverend Mother"] "The audience needs to open up their hearts and become one with us until the very end".
[Interview : ] "It's time for the Wheel of Fortune! Spin the wheel!"
The actors actually interact with the audience during the show, making the performance even more enjoyable.
