What a song and dance. Sister Act brings clever lyrics, stratospheric tunes, and laugh out loud comedy to the New Wimbledon Theatre’s starstruck audience.
The singer’s life takes an unexpected turn when under the protection of romantically inept cop, Eddie Souther (Edward Baruwa), she is thrown into the care of highly-strung nun, Mother Superior (Denise Black).
The swingin’ singin’ sisters are a hit in the neighbourhood, but Delores’ soul singing fame helps Curtis and his henchmen track her down.
With remarkable wordplay, the score is faultless and diverse. “The Life I Never Led” sung by Sister Mary Robert (Julie Atherton) and the twisted lyrics of mobster Curtis, “When I Find My Baby,” exemplify a range from the poignant to the hilarious.
Denise Black delivers a suitably dry wit clashing fabulously with the effervescence of Cynthia Erivo and Michael Starke’s warmth and bombast as preacher Monsignor O’Hara.
“Sister Act has a strong message,” said Coronation Street star, Denise Black. “It’s about learning to change. It’s about joy, tolerance and love.” Amen.
