Photo Flash: First Look at Theatre By The Sea's SISTER ACT
Theatre By The Sea's production of SISTER ACT plays now through September 4, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
SISTER ACT is the international smash hit musical based on the mega-hit 1992 film that starred Whoopi Goldberg. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and the uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique talents to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it is nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.
SISTER ACT is written by multi-Emmy Award-winners Cheri and Bill Steinkellner ('Cheers'), with additional material contributed by additional book material by Tony and Olivier Award-nominee Douglas Carter Beane. SISTER ACT features all new original music by Tony and 8-time Oscar-winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors, Aladdin) and lyrics by Glenn Slater (School of Rock, Leap of Faith, Love Never Dies, Tangled) with a vast inspiration of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems and Barry White inspired musical comedy.
