Late Nite Catechism
A Chicago nun conducts an adult education class in the catechism, where she calls on "students" (the audience) to answer questions and sometimes "reprimands" them in a semi-scary nunly fashion. It's a cute, mildly entertaining play that is also extremely Cathocentric: it assumes the universality of Catholic concerns. Nonbelievers of all kinds will probably find this show irksome because at the play's center is a mushy acceptance of the religion's bizarre brain teaser form of theology. It's also rather pricey for what you get--a one person show set in a standard classroom. CLOUD 9 PRODUCTIONS AT THE MAIN STREET THEATER, 904 SW Main St, 790-2787, Thur-Fri 8 pm, Sat 2 and 8 pm, Sun 7 pm, through Jan 28 , $24.50-$29.50
