A new musical based on the 1992 film of the same name.  When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found - a convent!  Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior.  Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover.  Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.

For The Record:

“Sister Act” opened at the Palladium in the West End on June 2, 2009.  The cast featured Patina Miller (Deloris) & Sheila Hancock (Mother Superior).  The 1992 film featured Whoopi Goldberg (Deloris) and Maggie Smith (Mother Superior).
