"One of the season’s happiest surprises […] Menken evokes the lush, funky sound of Philly soul without falling into mere pastiche." -The NY Post

"Composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater provide original tunes that nod cheekily, but with genuine affection, to that pop era while also propelling the story with a style and exuberance specific to well-crafted musical theater. Librettists Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, enlisting additional material from Douglas Carter Beane, adapt the screenplay with disarming wryness." -USA Today

"When the wimples start quivering, the pinched mouths break into sunbeam smiles, and the nuns start rocking to raise the Gothic rafters, all’s right in the kingdom of musical comedy." -The New York Times
SISTER ACT opened on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre on April 20, 2011. After the West End production closed, the show went through a multitude of revisions, helmed by book writer Douglas Carter Beane. Patina Miller transferred with the production in the role of Deloris, costarring with Victoria Clark, Fred Applegate, and Chester Gregory. It closed on August 26, 2012 after 561 performances.
Characters
CURTIS A club owner, notorious gangster, and Deloris's boyfriend. Cocky and controlling, always on the verge of violence. Male, 30-40 yrs old Range: A2 - Ab4
DELORIS VAN CARTIER An aspiring performer, trying to find both fame and a place in the world. When forced to hide in the convent, she initially refuses to embrace her new lifestyle but learns to embrace it when she works with the choir. Loud-mouthed, and sassy, but ultimately caring. Female, 25-35 yrs old Range: E3 - F#5
EDDIE SOUTHER The desk chief at the Philadelphia police station and a high school classmate of Deloris who helps get her into hiding. Faces a lot of nerves when under pressure, causing him to sweat profusely. He still yearns for Deloris after all these years, and dreams of being her hero. Male, 25-35 yrs old Range: Ab2 - B4
ENSEMBLE NUNS; BAR DENIZENS (BAR PATRON, WAITRESS, POOL PLAYER, DRAG QUEEN); HOMELESS PEOPLE; FANTASY DANCERS
ERNIE One of Curtis's thugs. Initially thought to be a mindless yes-man, he turns out to be an undercover police informant. Male, 25-35 yrs old Speaking Role
JOEY One of Curtis's thugs. Believes himself to be quite the ladies' man. Male, 30-40 yrs old Range: Bb2 - Eb5
MICHELLE One of Deloris's back-up singers. Lippy and always quick with a retort. Female, 20-30 yrs old Range: Bb3 - F5
MONSIGNOR O'HARA One of the heads of the convent. Constantly concerned with financial matters, though soul music surprisingly puts him in a different mood. Male, 45-60 yrs old Range: E3 - G4
MOTHER SUPERIOR The head of the convent, sarcastic and a bit stiff. Extremely protective about keeping her sisters away from the outside world, which puts her in direct opposition to Deloris and her musical teachings. Female, 50-70 yrs old Range: D3 - E5
PABLO One of Curtis's thugs. A natural follower, constantly speaks in Spanish. Male, 25-40 yrs old Range: C4 - F5
SISTER MARY LAZARUS A nun of the convent and the head of the choir. Rather deadpan and the least welcoming of any of the nuns, but she gets caught up in Deloris's soul music. Female, 50-70 yrs old Range: F3 - B4
SISTER MARY MARTIN-OF-TOURS A nun of the convent. Clearly in her own world, but has her moments of surprising clarity. Female, 40-60 yrs old Speaking Role
SISTER MARY PATRICK A nun of the convent. Consistently perky, enthusiastic, and easily excitable. Female, 35-50 yrs old Range: G3-E6
SISTER MARY ROBERT A postulant, abandoned as a baby and raised at the convent. Shy and soft-spoken, but singing with Deloris lets her find her voice. Her wallflower lifestyle has made her live a shell of a life. Female, 16-25 yrs old Range: F#3 - A5
SISTER MARY THERESA A nun of the convent, the oldest of the group. Decrepit at a glance, but secretly packs a punch. Female, 60-70 yrs old Speaking Role TINA One of Deloris's back-up singers. A little thick and naive. Female, 20-30 yrs old Range: Ab3 - F5
TJ Curtis's nephew and one of his thugs. Deft and cognizant of the fact, constantly in a state of ignorant bliss. Male, 16-30 yrs old Range: Db3 - Eb5
