Sister Act Tickets Sister Act Became The Highest Grossing Show Ever At The Venue-restorator

UnCategorized Sister Act is a musical written by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, with lyrics by Glenn Slater and music by Alan Menken. It is based on the hit 1992 film .edy of the same name. The West End production was produced by Stage Entertainment and Whoopi Goldberg. Directed by Peter Schneider and choreographed by Marguerite Derricks, the musical premiered at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California on October 24, 2006 and closed on December 23, 2006. It broke records, grossing $1,085,929 to be.e the highest grossing show ever at the venue. Patina Miller, who would later go on to play the role of Deloris when the show opened in London, was in the ensemble and understudied Deloris. Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times stated it has "Broadway blockbuster written all over it," and Laurence Vittes described it as "hugely entertaining… likely to be.e a classic" in The Hollywood Reporter Jonas Schwartz was less enthusiastic, saying it "suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. When focused within the confines of the church and the convent, the show is heavenly, singing loudly and confidently. However, the scenes that take place in the outside world are painted with unnecessarily broad and occasionally offensive strokes. Moreover, Dawnn Lewis lacks punch in the lead role of Deloris Van Cartier… is too whiny to fully .mand the stage." The production then moved to the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, where it ran from January 17 to February 25, 2007. The cast included Dawnn Lewis as Deloris, Elizabeth Ward Land as the Mother Superior, and Harrison White as Curtis. Curt Holman, writing for the Atlanta-based website CreativeLoafing.., described it as "a whiplash-inducing experience of genuinely clever and exuberant flourishes alternating with cringe-inducing embarrassments, The weakest parts of Sister Act tend to be the most faithful moments to the film, which makes you wonder what Menken, Slater and the production’s delightful design team could have done with original material." Sister Act opened in the West End at the London Palladium on June 2, 2009, following previews from May 7. The production was directed by Peter Schneider and choreographed by Anthony Van Laast, with set design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Lez Brotherston and lighting design by Natasha Katz. Following a year-long search, 24-year-old actress Patina Miller was cast as Deloris, alongside Sheila Hancock as the Mother Superior, Ian Lavender as Monsignor Howard, Chris Jarman as Shank, Ako Mitchell as Eddie, Katie Rowley Jones as Sister Mary Robert, Claire Greenway as Sister Mary Patrick and Julia Sutton as Sister Mary Lazerus. It was announced on April 29, 2010 that Pop Star, Simon Webbe, would join the cast as Curtis Shank on May 31, 2010 and that the production will close on January 1, 2011.It was then announced the show would close on October 30, 2010 to make way for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s revival of The Wizard of Oz. Chris Jarman took a planned break from the show in May during which time Webbe played the role of Shank, and Sheila Hancock left in July due to other contractual .mitments. All cast members except for Simon Webbe played their parts until the closing of the show. Whoopi Goldberg joined the cast as the Mother Superior for a limited engagement that was supposed to last from August 10/31, 2010, but she left the cast on August 27 due to her mother suffering a stroke. Goldberg was then succeeded by Sally Dexter.However, Goldberg returned to the cast for five performances: one on October 22, 2010 and two shows each October 23 and 25.The show closed as announced on 30 October 2010.
