  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Sister Act

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    April 20, 2011: When the wimples start quivering, the pinched mouths break into sunbeam smiles, and the nuns start rocking to raise the Gothic rafters, all’s right in the kingdom of musical comedy at “Sister Act.” Who could resist the vision of a stage full of saintly sisters flaring their gams in unison like the Rockettes, or swiveling their hips, Supremes style, to the silken beat of an R&B tune? Presumably nobody in the audience at the Broadway Theater, where this latest stage adaptation of a hit movie opened on Wednesday night.

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Sister Act

    April 20, 2011: This has not been a great season for Broadway musicals based on movies. “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” was a total bust, and “Catch Me If You Can” was a disappointment, too.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Sister Act

    April 20, 2011: Whoopi Goldberg looms large over the new musical comedy "Sister Act," and that's part of the problem. While she co-produced, Goldberg isn't onstage, and the outsized sense of hilarity mixed with humanity she brought to the 1992 motion picture is sorely missed. Patina Miller makes an altogether impressive Broadway debut as diva-on-the-run Deloris Van Cartier, singing up a veritable storm, but the decision to plaster Goldberg's name on numerous signs outside the theater raises comparisons that flatter neither Miller nor this garish production.

    April 20, 2011: There's a lot of fun to be had at Sister Act, the new musical at the Broadway Theatre, based upon the 1992 movie of the same name, which has arrived in New York having undergone a number of changes since its recent London mounting.
