Sister Act Heading To Broadway!

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

sister act the musical on broadway in april

But not until after it gets an rewrite!

Sister Act, The Musical will be transferring from London to Broadway on April 20th, but it's getting an overhaul.

The original director was replaced by Jerry van Zaks and now bookwriters Cheri and Bill Steinkellner are getting the boot as well. The are being replaced by Xanadu writer Douglas Carter van Beane.

It's definitely been through the ringer - if only Whoopi was there to save it!

Would U see Sister Act on Broadway?!

    'An rewrite?' I think this is your signature thing Perez. I think you guys do this on purpose. Then you read and laugh @ how many people you pissed off that day.

    Perez, please if you do Broadway stuff, do a little research, and please don't make it so obvious that you are just doing a cut and paste job of Michael Riedel's original article.

    The "van"s in Jerry Zaks and Douglas Carter Beane is because in the original Riedel article in the NY Post, Reidel makes fun of the creative team/producer that put on this show in London. The producer is Joop van de Ende, and thus, he skewers this by adding "van" to every name. Perez merely copied and pasted all the info, without deleting the "van" (and if he really gave a rip about theater/Broadway, he would know what their correct names are).

    Thanks for trying Perez… But if you were still in middle/high school, you would have been caught for plagiarism!

    Well, it's already been a HIT at London's famed Palladium. Breaking records left and right. I hear that Patina Miller is all but set to join the company on the Bway. I am sure that the rewrites by 'van Bean' are only to re-Americanize the saying in the show and give it some good ol' American campiness. As far as 'van Zaks' he knows the Whoopi world better than most, as he directed her acclaimed, but short-lived sitcom. I sooo am looking forward the the Bway Bow. Raise your voice!
