BWW Interview: Tricia Tanguy and Michelle Rompola of Sister Act National Tour

October 5, 2013 | BroadwayWorld..com

Michelle: Sister Act is not just a recreation of the movie. It's totally different, actually. It's set in the 70s as opposed to the movie, which is in the 60s. The movie is...we take the same basic plot of the movie, but it's really vamped up and really fun. It's perfect for the stage. So it's really not just a recreation of the movie, but it takes what everyone loves from the movie and adds more to it for the stage. So it's really fun for the audience.

Theater review: Sister Act

January 11, 2013 | clclt.com

Unsullied by a profound or interesting idea - and deftly skirting spirituality almost entirely - Sister Act is a joyous affirmation that boogying and becoming a superstar are far better life choices than being dead or praying and becoming a nun. Not that there's anything wrong about vowing chastity, embracing poverty, or betrothing yourself to Jesus.

This 'Sister' Is No Act

May 9, 2011 | Wall Street Journal

It was a miracle that actress Victoria Clark, who plays Mother Superior in the musical "Sister Act," found Mother Dolores Hart.Two decades ago, Mother Dolores, a Hollywood actress turned Benedictine nun, was pursued by screenwriter Paul Rudnick for inspiration on what would become the 1992 movie "Sister Act." Mr. Rudnick never found her, and though her life bears resemblance to that of the main character in the film (and now the musical), Deloris Van Cartier, she did not, in fact, provide that inspiration.

The show is an adaptation of the 1992 film in which Whoopi Goldberg played a Reno lounge singer, Deloris Van Cartier, who becomes a murder witness and hides out in a convent, where she teaches the nuns to sing new versions of oldies like "Shout." But the musical's composer, Alan Menken (an eight-time Academy Award winner), and lyricist, Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid on Broadway, Tangled on film), wanted their songs to take a different direction. "I had already done a show with R&B and Motown," said Mr. Menken, referring to his 1982 off-Broadway hit Little Shop of Horrors. "And I really didn't want to be in the same territory as the movie."
