It just lacked originality. Boring. It was not without redeaming features --- the mother superior role was well done by an obvious musical theater professional --- but in general, there are better ways to spend an evening.

It really followed the story. The costumes were beautiful. The actors were wonderful and the main character had a wonderful voice. I would recommend it highly. We loved it!

Definitely entertaining and delightfully funny at times. The goofy, excitable nun is hilariously fun! And the "bad guys" had really amusing parts .... laughed so hard at those parts. Otherwise, could be a bit cliche at times. And I found the...continued

Our seats were great. The actors were outstanding...but I didn't much care for the way the music was portrayed in the church and the priest's role of trying to be "groovy" was over the top for me and detracted from the performance.

Wasn't sure if it was just going to be a flat re-telling of the movie, but it was quite entertaining in it's own right!

It's a good, rousing show but as with virtually every Broadway musical these days, the amplified music is so loud that you cannot understand the lyrics. It would have made sense to project the words as surtitles just as with opera. Anyone old...continued

Highly, highly recommend. Star-studded performance. Their vocals were phenomenal. It was a really fabulous musical-comedy! Everyone was uber talented and the script was very well-written. Deloris (Ta'Rea Campbell) carried the show. Tony-award...

Sister Act is well done and enjoyable. Some of the characters are not fully drawn, but the singing and dancing communicate well the joy of the performers.
