Out and About

Nunsense A-Men!: You’ve probably seen the movies or plays, but Way Off Broadway in Frederick adds a twist to the Nunsense series in “Nunsense A-Men” -- all the nuns are men. The only way to describe it is “Mrs. Doubtfire enters the convent,” said the theater director. The play runs through August 29. Showtimes: www.wayoffbroadway.com.
