In 1992 millions of people in cinemas around the world laughed their hearts out watching Whoopi Goldberg and her nun sisters. In the musical version we again meet Deloris the nightclub singer, who is hiding in the convent from gangsters and making the convent walls shake with her nuns' choir. Their antics have audiences at the Stage Apollo Theatre in Stuttgart in stitches.
What could be more whacky than a tale about a nightclub singer having to hide from mobsters in a convent? In 1992 Sister Act brought a richly comic story of two totally different worlds on a constant collision course to cinemas and became a massive worldwide hit.
The stage version is just as brilliant as the film. When Deloris van Cartier, a talented nightclub singer, escapes from a group of gangsters and ends up in a strict Catholic convent with nuns whose singing is not what it might be, everyone's in for a shock. But the audience of 1,800 at the Stage Apollo Theatre in Stuttgart is in for a treat. Sister Act – the musical is an unforgettable experience full of energy, divine singing and toe-tapping tunes. As Whoopi Goldberg, who co-produced the musical, says: "You'll have a fabulous time! There's no deeper meaning, no hidden messages – just go to the theatre and you'll have a fantastic evening. You don't have to be a genius to see this show. Just come along and have fun!"
