WEST END THEATRELAND is buzzing with the news that American actress/comedian Whoopi Goldberg is to join the cast of the hit musical, Sister Act, in London in August. Goldberg was the star of the film on which the musical is based and has been producing the musical, and she’s donning the nun’s habit once again for a limited season from 10 to 31 August, taking over the role of Mother Superior from Sheila Hancock.

This role will be Goldberg’s West End debut although she has plenty of Broadway credits to her name. She is joined on stage by the critically acclaimed Patina Miller in the lead role of Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi’s role in the original movie), recording artist Simon Webbe as Curtis Shank and Dad’s Army star Ian Lavender as Monsignor.
