Due to ongoing government restrictions resulting in a further delay to the production Jamie Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg, the producers of Sister Act – The Musical, have sadly announced today that it is impossible to open the show at London’s Eventim Apollo this summer. The performances are now rescheduled to begin in July 2022.
This necessary change of dates now means that Whoopi Goldberg will no longer be able to appear in the role of Deloris Van Cartier.
Whoopi Goldberg said today, “Sister Act is near and dear to my heart and I’m disappointed that I will be unable to perform in this production under the circumstances. However, my producing partners and I will continue to work towards mounting a fantastic production, with an amazing new cast and we look forward to presenting it when it can be done safely for everyone onstage, behind the scenes and in the audience.”
Producer Jamie Wilson says “This new version of Sister Act The Musical has been in development for several years now and both Whoopi and I are committed to launching this celebratory, joyous and life affirming production with audiences in the UK. We can’t wait for everyone involved in the show to get back to doing what they love. We are now in the process of putting together a star-studded cast and will be able to share this news with you soon. We look forward to us all supporting and celebrating theatre when we return to the stage. It will be worth the wait”.
The London run at Eventim Apollo is now rescheduled to open 19th July 2022, where it will play until 28th August 2022.
