Sister Act is based on the 1992 film that had audiences jumping to their feet. Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken ("Newsies," "Beauty and the Beast,"), this musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.
