Sister Act: The Musical
Eventim Apollo, London
London revival coming soon

Sister Act is now postponed at the Eventim Apollo to summer 2022, with Whoopi Goldberg no longer performing in the musical as Deloris Van Cartier. Read here for more information.

Sister Act is in London at the Eventim Apollo from 19 July to 28 Aug. 2022. 

Sister Act follows Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer placed on a witness protection programme which sees her forced to join a convent. The film was adapted for the stage with music by Alan Menken in 2012, which features songs such as “Take Me To Heaven”, “How I Got the Calling”, “Raise Your Voice” and “Spread the Love Around”.

The musical premiered at the London Palladium in 2009, produced by Stage Entertainment and Whoopi Goldberg, to critical acclaim. It was nominated for four Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical. Towards the end of the London Palladium run, Whoopi Goldberg joined the West End cast for a limited number of special performances in August and October 2010.

Sister Act then transferred to Broadway's Broadway Theatre, where it starred Patina Miller. Directed by Jerry Zaks, the show was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2011.

Since closing in the West End in 2010, the show has toured the UK twice. In 2011, the tour starred Cynthia Erivo as Deloris van Cartier and in 2016, Alexandra Burke starred in a production directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood.

Further casting and creative team for the new London production of Sister Act is yet to be announced. Previously, the cast included Jennifer Saunders as Mother Superior, recently starring in Blithe SpiritClive Rowe was due to play Lt. Eddie Souther, with Brenda Edwards in the national tour.

 

 

 

Deloris van Cartier is a Reno lounge singer who witnesses her mobster boyfriend commit a murder, forcing her into witness protection. She's placed in a convent in California, in the hope she will adapt to the quiet lives of the nuns and stay out of trouble. The nuns assign her to the choir, where she naturally transforms them into a soulful gospel group and helps them find their voice.
