Get In on the Act!

Whoopi dishes on her latest Broadway endeavor

Yeah, I know… you’ve probably seen lots of musicals based on movies. But you haven’t seen any like “Sister Act”. I’m producing this hilarious show right now on Broadway, and if you’re looking for a great time, trust me – this is it.

You all know the basic story from the movie, right? Girl singer dates Bad Guy, Bad Guy murders someone and Girl sees it, Girls hides out where Bad Guy would never think to look for her – a convent with a bunch of nuns!

But the musical really brings it to a whole new level. Our leading ladies (Patina Miller and Tony winner Victoria Clark) are ridiculously good. The amazing music is by multi-Academy Award winner Alan Menken (who wrote Beauty and the Beast, Enchanted, The Little Mermaid and Little Shop of Horrors) and his long-time collaborator/lyricist Glenn Slater … oh and then there’s our director made in heaven in the shape of Jerry Zaks.

So, bottom line: Email your girlfriends. Pick a date. I promise, you’ll love it.

xo, Whoopi

    Oh, I wish I could see Sister Act, though not possible unless the show is taken on the road someday this direction.

    Best of luck on your new musical, Whoopie! The movie was great fun with great music (and a talented leading lady!), so I am sure the show will be, too. If I get to New York, I will make every attempt to see it.
