REVIEWS

Big, glitzy numbers are the toast of Broadway musicals. The only thing better? Big, glitzy numbers...with nuns! Sister Act has plenty of both — and it’s one of the season’s happiest surprises...Menken evokes the lush, funky sound of Philly soul without falling into mere pastiche...Aside from a lull in the second act, the show moves at a good clip, and pushes every imaginable button: Old lady rapping? Reliable. Old nun rapping? Off the charts! Every part is impeccably cast...Sister Act would go on for five hours, and it’s already packed with goodies. To which we say: Amen!

It's hard to resist when the sisters and a few brothers make such a joyful noise...Tongue-in-cheek nun stories are certainly nothing new, but this show's salvation is some very savvy producing. The songs by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater are clever variations on recognizable disco tunes from the era. They also help to quicken the show's pace by advancing the familiar plot...Veteran director Jerry Zaks is the perfect choice to helm this silly confection, balancing the fluff with sentiment...Casting is spot on as well. Everyone delivers...In Miller a star is born.
