Actress Whoopi Goldberg starred in the Hollywood movie original Sister Act, and now she has co-produced an award winning stage version which is at New Wimbledon Theatre this week.
Along with Goldberg, Stage Entertainment (behind the smash nits Hairspray and Singin' in the Rain) has co-produced the stage show, which has been nominated five times for the Tony award.
Having played at the West End and Broadway, the musical starring Michael Starke and Denise Black is now on tour.
Black, who plays disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder and is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be found - a convent.
Disguised as a nun she makes the wrong impression on the strict Mother Superior. But when she transforms the choir into the most glorious musical act in town, Deloris forms a lasting bond with her newfound friends - and the gang that's chasing her finds itself up against an unstoppable team of soulful sisters.
This fabulous, family-friendly, feel-good show is packed with songs inspired by Motown, funk, soul and disco, which more than a million people saw in the West End.
