Whoopi Goldberg’s ‘Sister Act’ Coming To Campus Tuesday
Tony-nominated comedy “Sister Act” is coming to Eisenhower Auditorium tomorrow, Feb. 10. The musical, which is a touring Broadway production, was produced by Whoopi Goldberg.
The musical was directed on Broadway by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, who has worked several successful plays such as “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” “Guys and Dolls,” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.”
The show itself, based off the hit film starring Goldberg, has garnered five Tony nominations. The musical comedy tells the story of a disco singer who ends up under the police-ordered custody of a convent after she witnesses her gangster boyfriend commit murder.
“To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at ‘Sister Act’ — a show people think they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they are expecting — is a magical experience for a producer,” Goldberg said in a press release.
The musical also features choreography by award-winning choreographer Anthony Van Laast, who has also worked on the plays “Mamma Mia” and “Bombay Dreams.”
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. You can buy tickets online or at the Eisenhower Auditorium box office. Discounts are available for students.
