"Sister Act", Ed Mirvish Theatre, Toronto, ON

Sister Sarah and I saw Sister Act tonight.

Sister Act is Broadway’s feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it “Ridiculously fun” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! 

Featuring original music by 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to rejoice! 

The only reason I'd bought us tickets was because Mirvish had a great seat sale a couple weeks ago ... buy one ticket and get another for $1.  Otherwise, I wouldn't have gone to see it.  I thought it would be a fun play for Sister Sarah and I.

And it was!

It was excellent!

It was fun and lively and colourful.  It's set in the 1970s and has that kind of vibe.  Some are suave in a Barry White kind of way.  All the actors did an excellent job in their roles.

I'm not Catholic and I didn't get some of the religious jokes, though.

I'd recommend it!

Here are Sister Sarah and I afterwards giving the play two thumbs up.
