With the arrival of the holidays, there is nothing better than taking a break from the never ending shopping, cocktailing, and constant stream of Jingle Bells on your local radio station. This is why I couldn’t have been more excited when I found out that one of my favorite movies of all time and now one of the most sensational shows on Broadway will be at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts! On December 18th the talented performers of Sister Act will hit the stage as a part of the Bank of America Broadway in Fort Lauderdale subscription series.

 

The show opened on Broadway in April of last year to rave reviews, and people just couldn’t get enough of the loo se lipped lounge singer turned nun, the music, and the overall story. In fact, Sister Act received five 2011 Tony Award nominations: Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical, and Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and for good reason.

 

Elisabeth Vincentelli of The New York Post calls Sister Act, “One of the season’s happiest surprises! Off the charts and packed with goodies, to which we say: Amen!” Joe Dziemianowicz of The New York Daily News raves, “A blessed event has landed on Broadway. Sister Act is a feel-good crowd pleaser worth celebrating. It keeps on purring from one happy moment to the next.”  Charles Isherwood of The New York Times says, “When the wimples start quivering and the nuns start rocking to raise the Gothic rafters, all’s right in the kingdom of musical comedy!” and Mark Kennedy of The Associated Press calls Sister Act, “In a word, divine. This is a musical that hits all the right spots, achieving something close to Broadway grace. It will convert you.”

“To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at Sister Act — a show people think they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they were expecting — is a magical experience for a producer,” says producer Whoopi Goldberg.  “Happily, audiences across the country will be able to get in on the fun this fall when Deloris and her fabulous sisters start spreading the love nationwide.”
