REVIEW: Sister Act – King’s Theatre Glasgow
“When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found – a convent! Disguised as a nun she makes the wrong impression on the convent’s strict Mother Superior. But when she transforms the convent’s choir into the most glorious new musical act in town, Deloris forms a lasting bond with her new found friends and the gang that’s chasing her finds itself up against an unstoppable team of soulful sisters!”
With major improvements to both its book and set – Sister Act stops here in Glasgow on its first national tour since its run in the West End, where it played to over 1 million people.
There’s no point posting a detailed critique on a show like this – all I need to say is that it played to a packed and very vocal crowd at The King’s Theatre who were on their feet at the end and nearly raised the roof with the volume of their praise.
This is an accomplished cast with not a weak link to be found and you would be hard-pressed to find more sequins on any stage, a better set or better lighting anywhere in the West End.
This would charm the hardest of hearts – just go and see it – trust me – you’ll love it.
Runs until 22nd September at King’s Theatre Glasgow, see ATG tickets for booking.
