Chicago Reader- Highly Recommended

"...A bona fide born-in-Chicago international hit, this simultaneously nostalgic and satirical comedy by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan concerns a nun instructing her students—that's you—on the dos and don'ts of dogma."

Jack Helbig

Windy City Times- Highly Recommended

"...Directors Marc Silva and Vince Cracht have built a lived-in Sunday-school classroom world, virtually unchanged since this production premiered in 1993. Why toy with what works for countless droves of good Catholics, their great-aunties and in-laws? Late Nite Catechism is a nice, harmless night out-and it benefits real retired nuns, to boot."

NewCity Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...Between teaching hilarious new prayers (“Hail Mary, full of Grace, help me find a parking space”), reminiscing about Catholic school, and raising funds for sisters in need, it’s not hard to see why the show is such a success."

Picture This Post- Recommended

"...Climbing the industrial strength stairs (an elevator is available) to the third floor of the Royal George Theater, walking down the long corridor illuminated with religious paraphernalia and show reviews-all prepare you to enter the classroom of "Sister" Mary Zentmyer, complete with the cursive alphabet wall border, chalk boards, old wooden three-drawer desk, lectern, and junior chair. Religious music sets the mood of nostalgia, whether for Gregorian chant or the remains of a hootenanny mass. Welcome to LATE NITE CATECHISM."
