"Sister Act"
Plays Boston Opera House
January 22 - February 3

Direct from Broadway, the five-time Tony-nominated smash hit musical "Sister Act" is coming to Boston for a limited two week engagement, January 22 – February 3, 2013, at the Boston Opera House. "Sister Act" is produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment and is part of the Lexus Broadway In Boston Series.

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she's put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found -- a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run, but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.

Based on the mega-hit feature film of the same name,"Sister Act" features an original Alan Menken-Glenn Slater score with a vast spectrum of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems and Barry White inspired musical comedy.

In addition to the Alan Menken-Glenn Slater score, "Sister Act" features a book by multi-Emmy Award winners Cheri and Bill Steinkellner (“Cheers”) with additional book material by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane ("Xanadu," "The Little Dog Laughed").

Directed on Broadway by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks ("Guys and Dolls," "A Funny Thing…Forum," "Smokey Joe’s Café"), the production features choreography by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Anthony Van Laast ("Mamma Mia," "Bombay Dreams") and is based on the Touchstone Pictures motion picture "Sister Act" written by Joseph Howard.
