This was a wonderful show - the performers were really excellent, and music upbeat, and it did as good a job telling the story as the movie did. Two of the characters, Sister Mary Patrick (the young, heavy set nun), and the old, cranky nun, whose...continued

The show was entertaining with a few stand-out numbers. The lead actress was exceptional, reminding me of Jennifer Hudson. Moving the story to 1978 allowed the songwriters to incorporate elements of the R&B and Disco music of the time frame...continued

I loved the movie years ago but this was even better. Amazing singing, great music and witty lyrics, fun choreography and a feel-good story. What more could you ask for in a musical? I left exhilarated and energized. I highly, highly recommend it!

Fun, fun, fun. Bring binoculars, seats are too far away from stage for this show. Would have liked to see the expressions on nun faces

Amazing show! The trio of gansters was hilarious! Just wish that had sung at least one song from the movie.

It was funny at times but a bit of a let down, expected something like the movie. Some things I felt were offensive like talking about Jesus on a stick I would not be quick to recommend it to anyone
