Sister Act In Detroit - A Glorious, Hilarious Hit!

**Thanks to the PR firm who provided complimentary tickets to view the show in exchange for me sharing this review. The opinions shared are mine and mine alone. Others may disagree.

The National tour of Sister Act, the broadway musical, has stopped here in Detroit for a few nights. I had the pleasure of sitting in the audience for opening night and I left wishing I could see it all over again.

Sister Act is based on the hit movie but the storyline and soundtrack have been freshened up for the stage - a change I enjoyed. It's still the story of Deloris needing a place to hide from her boyfriend and ending up in a convent where she teaches the nuns how to sing. Yes, the nuns learn to sing and then go on to wow their congregation {as well as their audience}.

This musical is hilarious and heartwarming. There were times when I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe and other times I was smiling as I watched true sisterhood played out before my eyes. The one-liners in this production are SO good and caught me off guard many, many times. Also? Be on the lookout for dance moves that will knock you out of your seat, as the nuns shake their sista' thangs.

From awkward to clumsy, daring to obedient, there's a character in this production for every viewer to relate to. You will love your time taking in all that Sister Act has to offer. And if you're anything like me, you'll be sad to see intermission come so soon and cheer as the 2nd act starts up.

To give you a preview of what's in store, check out this video.
