Coming to the Boston Opera House on January 22 and running into February is the touring Broadway show, Sister Act.
Whether you tend to fall to your knees giving thanks, or to award a show you like by jumping to your feet to cheer as it ends, this show is a winner. So you can surely both say a little prayer of thanks and reward the performers with a cheer because you can catch the tour of the hit Broadway show Sister Act as it stops in Boston.Based on the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film, Sister Act tells the hilarious story of club singer and wannabe disco diva Deloris Van Cartier (Hollis Resnik).
After she witnesses a crime, the cops hide Deloris in a convent, where her special brand of funk collides with the traditions of the church, shaking up the nuns and their daily routine. Under the suspicious watch of overbearing Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. This feel-good comedy features music by Tony- and eight-time Academy Award-winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast), and has been called “ridiculously fun” (New York Post) and “a pull-out-the-stops, big Broadway musical” (The New York Observer).

Hollis Resnik says
The five items I can’t live without on the road:
1. A tennis racquet. I am an avid tennis player and have played in clubs all over the country.
2. Tango shoes. A year ago I took up Argentine tango. I am obsessed, so I find lessons to attend on the road and I get to meet new friends.
3. A good book.
5. A jar of Soynut Butter. It’s a great snack!
It’s all about Sisterhood
The show-stopping Deloris is the heart and soul of this feel-good musical. Her glamorous lifestyle and general fabulousness keep everyone rooting for her through her journey to the convent, her run-ins with the dour Mother Superior and her inspirational choir numbers, all while evading her boyfriend and the trio of singing gangsters hot on her tail. Modern Broadway ballads make way for rousing all-cast production numbers in the infectious score from eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken. Who wouldn’t love nuns in sequins, unlikely friendships, the solidarity of Sisterhood and a happy ending?
Sister Act is good for the whole family
The show is recommended for ages 9 and older. From its brightly colored costumes to its hummable tunes and wholesome message, Sister Act is a family friendly musical all the way. The big no-nos—sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll—play little part in the show (these are nuns, after all) and what violence is seen onstage is largely implied, rather than graphic.
