Review by Jhez Bermudez.
I left home on a rainy evening to watch the newly revived Sister Act at Milton Keynes Theatre and this production brought sunshine on a cold blustery wintery evening through the dazzling and stellar performances of the cast who brought joy and laughter to a responsive audience. Lesley Joseph who played the role of Mother Superior captivated us, the audience, with her superb acting skills and brilliant comedic timing. She personified the character with wit, humour and flawless delivery and her solo number deserved the deafening applause she got from an involved and entertained audience. On the other hand, Sandra Marvin who played Deloris Van Cartier delighted us with her stunning vocals and fantastic delivery of the comical sketches that elicited laughter and appreciation. I must say that t who played sister Mary Robert delighted us all with her vocal prowess and that note she held so long left us breathless for a moment which defined her amazing lungs which got me so mesmerised. In fact the entire cast made this production a success due to their undeniably livid and refreshing approach in delivering their parts. The lighting stage set up and music all made this musical a must see and the musical numbers make you want to join them on that stage because of the infectious energy and impeccable singing and dancing. One must come to watch this without remembering the film and no need to do a comparison because this production stands out for its own merit of fun, comedy and original music. If you want to have an evening of laughter and fun , this is worth your time and money which I simply call glorious. Truly it is a divine musical comedy and I loved it💖💖💖 so what are you waiting for book your tickets and be delighted.
