Patina Miller to Reprise Star Turn in Broadway Production of Sister Act
Patina Miller will reprise her Olivier Award-nominated performance as Deloris Van Cartier in the forthcoming Broadway production of Sister Act. The musical will begin previews at the Broadway Theatre on March 24, 2011, and open on April 20, directed by Jerry Zaks. Further casting will be announced shortly.

Based on the hit film, Sister Act features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she wonít be found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon itís nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.
Sister Act features choreography by Anthony Van Laast, scenery by Klara Zieglerova, costumes by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Mick Potter and orchestrations by Doug Besterman. The show is being produced by Whoopi Goldberg and Stage Entertainment.
