It’s always fun to attend a play or a concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta. So it made it doubly fun to be able to attend opening night of the award-winning play “Sister Act,” direct from Broadway.
Years ago I saw the original movie version of “Sister Act” starring Whoopi Goldberg. It was entertaining then, but watching the live stage performance was a foot-stomping thrill.
The music in this play is guaranteed to keep you wanting to clap your hands and tap your feet. There is enough humor that while clapping your hands you will also be smiling.
The music set in the old Philadelphia street style which spawned singers like Frankie Valli and the early doo-wop groups, brought back great memories. Having been educated and raised in the Catholic church, and being guided through my early life by nuns, the innuendos used throughout the play made me chuckle.
Ta’rea Campbell was superb as Deloris and Hollis Resnik played a suffering Mother Superior to perfection. It looked like opening night was close to a sell-out.
“Sister Act” will be here until April 28, so if you want to have a feel-good time, I recommend you make an evening of it by catching “Sister Act” while it is here. You won’t be sorry.
