Clive Rowe joins Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act London cast
UPDATE: Sister Act is now postponed to 2022, with Whoopi Goldberg no longer playing Deloris Van Cartier. Read here for more information.
Olivier Award winner Rowe will play Eddie Souther in the musical, the police chief who suggests Goldberg's character Deloris joins a witness protection programme which sees her embedded in a convent of nuns.
Rowe has previously appeared in Carousel, Sweet Charity, and Chicago in London, and won an Olivier for best supporting actor in a musical for his role in Guys and Dolls at the National Theatre.
Last week, it was announced that more tickets would be released for Sister Act this Friday, as the production extends by a week.
