A whole lot of fun! - Sister Act reviewPosted by: Sam Pegg
We review the brand new production of the Broadway and UK smash hit musical Sister Act direct from London at Sheffield Lyceum
WOW! What a fantastic show filled with joy, laughter and a WHOLE lot of fun! Everything about this show was ‘heavenly’, from hyping the audience up, to the emotional moments, the level of standard was exceptional. It all starts when Deloris’ musical energy and dreams are put on holt after witnessing a tragic murder, although, it turns out for the better. Taking cover within a convent, she eventually finds her feet by relighting a fire within the struggling choir of nuns. The story of duo Mother Superior and Deloris is progressively moving throughout and the amount of discos and dancing is sure to get you super excited. Expect to have the time of your life with a well set staging and original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® award-winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted) and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco.
5 stars from us!
