DELORIS IS BACK, AND SHES READY TO TAKE ON THE 21ST CENTURY

Brace yourselves Sisters! The Broadway and UK smash-hit musical Sister Act is coming to Curve immediately prior to its record-breaking London run, reimagined for the 21st century and starring West End powerhouse Brenda Edwards (Hairspray, Chicago, Loose Women) in the specially rewritten role of Deloris Van Cartier, TV & Stage star Lesley Joseph (Birds of a Feather, Young Frankenstein) as Mother Superior and Olivier Award-winning Clive Rowe as Eddie Souther.

Now set in 2020, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent!  Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, this joyous and hilarious musical is one nostalgia-filled trip you will never forget.

Reinventing the role of Deloris for an older actor is something that I have always wanted to do. To have the amazingly talented Brenda Edwards play her is going to be a real thrill. It’s Sister Act the way Sister Act should be!” — WHOOPI GOLDBERG
