Raven-Symoné (The Cosby Show) is set to takeover the leading role in the critically acclaimed Broadway production of “Sister Act”, reports Deadline.

“The actress-singer is set to take over the lead role in the musical Sister Act based on the hit 1992 movie, replacing Patina Miller as Deloris Van Cartier. Whoopi Goldberg, who played Deloris in the film and its sequel, produces the Broadway adaptation featuring original music by Alan Menken, which opened in April 2011.”

Raven-Symoné is expected to begin rehearsals in late February with a March Broadway debut.
