Patina Miller to Play Final Performance tonight in Broadway’s Sister Act

Posted on March 18, 2012 /Theater


Patina Miller, who originated the role of Deloris Van Cartier, will play her final performance in Sister Act tonight, March 18th. Miller made her Broadway debut in the production and was nominated for a Tony and Oliver award. The actress also starred in the first West End production in London.

As previously reported, actress Raven-Symoné will replace her, beginning performances on March 27th. Sister Act, which will celebrate it’s one-year Anniversary on Broadway on April 20, is playing at the Broadway Theater.

Based on the film, Sister Act features an original score by 8-time Oscar® and 10-time Grammy Award® winner Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, The Little Mermaid, Enchanted).

Disco diva Deloris Van Cartier has dreams of hitting the big time. But when she walks in on a “hit” of a different kind, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent! At first, Deloris – disguised as “Sister Mary Clarence” – has trouble adjusting to life under the strict rule of Mother Superior. But when she transforms the convent’s choir into the most glorious new musical act in town, Deloris forms a lasting bond with her newfound friends… and the gang that’s chasing her finds itself up against an unstoppable team of soulful sisters!

The cast also includes Demond Green, Chester Gregory, Charl Brown, and Kingsley Leggs.
