Sister Act is
Broadway's feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it "Ridiculously fun,” and
audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement!
Based on the movie that starred Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg,
the stage production of Sister Act follows Deloris Van Cartier, a
lounge singer who witnesses a crime committed by her gangster boyfriend.
Her life is turned topsy-turvy when the cops insist that Deloris the
diva must go into a witness protection program at a convent, where she
will pose as just another nun.
This forces her to give up a life of glitz and glamour for one of
piousness and prayer. As a suspicious and often disapproving Mother
Superior looks on, Deloris helps her fellow nuns find their voices and a
sense of rhythm, while at the same time, she finds her sense of self.
The theater version of the show is a little different from the movie.
While the movie was set in the 1990s in San Francisco, the stage
production is set in Philadelphia in the 1970s, giving it more sparkle
and a disco feel.
