Based on the hilarious movie that starred Whoopi Goldberg (she’s also one of the producers here), Sister Act is a new Broadway musical that gets everyone worked up into a divine frenzy. It’s the story of Deloris Van Cartier (Raven), a disco diva who happens to walk in on a mob hit… and has to hit the ground running to survive retaliation from the bad guys. So where does she hide out? In a convent, of course!
At first, she has trouble adjusting to such a strict environment. But in time, she realizes that what these nuns need is a little rhythm and all the right moves. And before you know it, she’s turned the singing nuns into the hottest musical act in town, and there’s no stopping her now! Talk about mint credentials: Sister Act arrives at the hands of 8-time Oscar and 10-time Grammy Award winner Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors), with direction by 4-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks (A Funny Thing…, Guys and Dolls). And making her Broadway debut, Raven-Symone (The Cosby Show, That’s So Raven) stars as Deloris Van Cartier!
Here's the buzz about this show; it's loads of fun. Sure, you've seen the movie, but you've never seen it live on stage, and you won't believe how they've turned it into a mega Broadway smash. There's the story you love about a nun on the run, there are amazing songs written by the guy who wrote this little show called Little Shop of Horrors, and there's the incredible bonding that happens when an audience comes together to embrace something that's simply an amazing time.
You’ll remember the lead actress, Raven-Symone, as that precious little girl who played Olivia on The Cosby Show in the 80s. Well, she’s all grown up now, but still every bit as precious as she delivers a performance that is infectiously entertaining. Kids, parents, and even grandparents will get into the Sister Act groove because this is a show that everyone can enjoy. Funny, smart, heartfelt, soulful… Sister Act is the show everyone's recommending right now for a great night out that you'll laugh about for years to come.
