Funny how everyone hates the pope and his army of molesty priests, but somehow nuns get off the hook every time! They’re beloved! Especially sassy black nuns singing Motown. Well everyone’s favorite sassy black motown singing nun (who isn’t really a nun unless I’m forgetting some crucial event in Sister Act 2) is making her way to Broadway to star in Sister Act: The Musical. The New York Times reports:
The musical, which has a score by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Cheri and Bill Steinkellner, will be directed by Jerry Zaks, a consultant on the Broadway incarnation of “The Addams Family.” It is to begin previews on March 24 with an opening night set for April 20. No casting was immediately announced for the show’s Broadway run
No word on the cast yet, but I’m hoping they find some way to involve Lauryn Hill!
