Union Avenue Opera says
In its first production after the premier in 2013, Doubt will star Christine Brewer as Sister Aloysius, a role she originated. Doubt is based on the 2005 Tony-Award winning play and 2009 Oscar-nominated screenplay by playwright John Patrick Shanley. Douglas J. Cuomo’s innovatively orchestrated score is by turns lush, acerbic, jazz-tinged, and mesmerizing, bringing the multitudinous intricacies of the complex plot to life.

At a Bronx Catholic School in 1964, the progressive Father Flynn enjoys a secure appointment and popularity in the community until Sister James suspects him of carrying on an improper relationship with the school’s first African-American student. Sister Aloysius, the school’s authoritarian principal, sets out to remove Flynn. Gender politics, race relations and the role of the church, questions about personal responsibility, doubt, right and wrong are all brought to bear here. So much in Doubt is about what is left unsaid and continually running beneath the surface.
