A catechism that's all in fun

You don’t have to be Catholic to enjoy “Late Night Catechism,” now at Sacramento’s Cosmopolitan Cabaret. But for Catholics in the audience it may be a kind of masochistic joy to relive the harsh discipline for which the teaching nuns have become famous. Playing Sister, a representative example, Maripat Donovan, who also co-wrote the show with director Marc Silvia, has audiences laughing instead of squirming as she covers the adventure of life from birth to death. Nonie Newton-Breen, long experienced in the role, will take over for Donovan on October 6.
