“Glorious fun!” Daily Telegraph (4 stars)
“Simply divine” Time Out
The show, which played to over a million people in the West End, stars Coronation Street’s Denise Black as Mother Superior, Brookside and The Royal favourite Michael Starke as Monsignor O’Hara, Avenue Q’s Julie Atherton as Sister Mary Robert and Cynthia Erivo as Deloris Van Cartier.
When disco diva Deloris witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun she quickly makes the wrong impression on the strict Mother Superior. But when she transforms the choir into the most glorious musical act in town, Deloris forms a lasting bond with her newfound friends - and the gang that’s chasing her finds itself up against an unstoppable team of soulful sisters!
Based on the smash hit movie of the same name, this fabulous, family-friendly, feel-good show is packed with songs inspired by Motown, funk, soul and disco. More than a million people saw Sister Act in the West End and now, as the habit hits the road in this multi-million pound production, you too can see why musical audiences fell in love with the funniest and funkiest nun on the run, and her heavenly sequinned sisters!
