‘Sister Act’ UK Highlights [Photos]

Posted on October 7, 2011 /London, Theater


The glamorous spectacle that is Sister Act— the musical, has recently opened in the UK to rave reviews.

Cynthia Erivo plays the lead role, Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg‘s character in the original film), a nightclub singer on the run from gangsters.

“A star is born in Cynthia Erivo, who takes on the role of Deloris made famous by Ms Goldberg and makes it entirely her own.A simply stunning voice, used to excellent effect as she aims to make showgirls of all her fellow nuns, is coupled with expert comic timing,” reviews UK’s City Life.

But Erivo isn’t the only black talent being praised for their stellar performance in the show.

“Heck even the baddies are goodies, with Cavin Cornwall having great fun playing meanie mobster Curtis Jackson, and his henchmen played by Tyrone Huntley, Daniel Stockton and Gavin Alex getting some of the biggest laughs of the show.”
