Nun Other: Whoopi Goldberg Joins Stage Sister Act???
In the film, of course, Goldberg played the lead of Deloris van Cartier (opposite Maggie Smith as the Mother Superior), the lounge singer put in protective custody in a convent after witnessing a murder. That part is taken on stage by Whatsonstage.com Award winner Patina Miller. Having the two American divas side-by-side on stage would certainly cause a stir at the box office.
Sister Act makes way at the Palladium for next year’s reality TV-cast production of The Wizard of Oz. Producers announced in May that they’re looking for a new West End home for Sister Act – while also preparing for a Broadway opening in spring 2011, a UK tour in autumn 2011 and various international productions – but no new London address has yet been announced.
