I am sure I don’t need to give Sister Act much of an introduction. The first Sister Act movie, directed by Emile Ardolino was released in 1992, when I was just 12. The film, starred Whoopi Goldberg and was an iconic feel good comedy- full of laughter, friendship and energy. It has been YEARS since I saw the film, and I was really looking forward to Sister Act the Musical UK Tour – live at the Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent.

So…What is Sister Act musical about?
Disco diva Deloris’ life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses her gangster boyfriend shoot someone. She is placed under protective custody and is hidden in the one place she shouldn’t be found – a convent of course! The story develops and Deloris is encouraged to help the struggling choir, and she helps her fellow sisters find their souls and their true voices whilst unexpectedly rediscovering 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 spirited musical is uplifting and feel good.
Sister Act the Musical Review 2023
I love a visit to the Regent Theatre. I love the hustle and bustle as you arrive at the theatre for the show, and I love the music, lights, choreography and pure talent on stage every single time. Sister Act didn’t let me down. Landi Oshinowo played the part of feisty, nun on the run Delores brilliantly. Landi has an amazing stage presence and charisma, and her voice… well it is just incredible. Mother Superior is played by Lesley Joseph who has wonderful stage presence, humour, wit and energy. The musical numbers included ‘take me to heaven’ and raise your voice’ and had everyone tapping their feet and clapping to the beat.
Sister Act is fun and feel good, and highlights the importance of friendship, sisterhood, growth and forgiveness. It is a show full of energy and laughter with plenty of sequins and show stopping music that will bring a smile to your face.
