DISCO, glitz, glamour and nuns all combine in the habit for the devine musical comedy Sister Act comes to Milton Keynes Theatre.
When pop diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put into protective custody by the cops in the one place she won’t be found, a convent.
And despite making the wrong impression on the Mother Superior, she transforms the choir into the most glorious musical act.
Arriving at the theatre last night, the audience were informed there were understudies taking the part of Deloris and the Mother Superior.
But this was no trouble as the replacements shined in their absence. Hannah Levane sung all her notes like she was a star while Shirley Jameson’s pithy Mother Superior who had the show’s best one liners.
A special mention must go to Julie Atherton’s shy and meek Sister Mary Robert and Tyrone Huntley’s TJ who stole the show every time he appeared on the stage.
This was incredibly slick and well polished show with some excellent choreography which made you laugh throughout.
The songs are very catchy and you’ll find yourself humming them all the way home. It is the ultimate feel good show which says a lot about friendship and making a difference in other people’s lives.
One of the songs sung is Take Me To Heaven, with the quality of this show on offer I felt I was already there.
