Sister Act...

On Friday night Andy, Kev, Stu and I went to see Sister Act at the Palladium in London's glitzy West End.

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 unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang are giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her new found Sister Hood.

Based on the smash-hit movie, Sister Act features a brand new score by eight time Oscar winner Alan Menken whose credits include Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and my favourite The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

It was fab, camp as tits and full of glitter - mixing as it did classic styled show tunes with Motown style disco numbers. A winning combination. A real big girls night out. Go see.

    Whilst you were watching SA, which i saw last week, i was watching Priscilla. Both film to stage adaptions and SA was WAAAAAY superior to Priscilla, which i didnt like at all. SA had a great new score and amazing performances. I want to go back! Priscilla was lame, the script was just one liners & apart from bernadette, the other leads were awful. No more jukebox musicals please!!

  2. Agreed about Priscilla vs Sister Act. The latter was way better. But still enjoyed both.

    And it looks like there are more film to show conversions on the way...
