Sister Act Debuts at the Fox

The city of Atlanta can collectively rejoice because one of the hottest new musicals on Broadway is finally making its way to the city. Arguably, one of the funniest, most memorable and crowd-pleasing comedies of the 90's is a full-fledged Broadway hit. In case you haven't guessed, it's the Whoopi Goldberg hit film Sister Act and it debuts at the Fox Theatre and runs from April 23 rd until the 28 th , so get your tickets while you can because this is guaranteed to be a fun ride for audiences of all ages! Five-time Tony Award nominated Sister Act is a family-friendly, over-the-top spectacle with nuns that rock!

When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found - a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover.

Soon it's nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood. Based on the mega-hit feature film , Sister Act features an original Alan Menken/Glenn Slater score with a vast inspiration of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems and Barry White inspired musical comedy.

Sister Act is produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment. It received five 2011 Tony Award nominations for: Best Musical, Best Original Score (Alan Menken (music)/ Glenn Slater (lyrics)), Best Book of a Musical (Cheri & Bill Steinkellner and Douglas Carter Beane), Best Actress in a Musical (Patina Miller) and Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Victoria Clark).
