Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you're looking for a funny, family-friendly musical with (mostly) great singing.

Don't see it if you don't like film-to-stage musicals or you want a smaller venue. It seats 3500, the front row of the mezz was pretty far from the stage.

See it if a fun musical with some great performances led by the magnificent Beverley Knight

The London Evening Standard
July 28th, 2022

"Beverley Knight’s storming voice and personality, and some stunning group numbers, just about keep this expensive but rickety musical buoyant. ... the show has warmth, several joyous moments and flashes of wit. But Bill Buckhurst’s production is the result of multiple compromises beneath the happy-clappy surface glitz."

Time Out London
July 28th, 2022

"‘Sister Act’ is an okay musical, revived with a decent cast and reasonable charm. It’s fine. But the whole point of this production was to bring Whoopi Goldberg here and she’s not here. I don’t think the producers should be blamed for persisting with it, and they may not have had much choice. But while there’s much here to like, at its heart this is event theatre without the actual event."

The Telegraph (UK)
July 28th, 2022

"There’s something mindlessly uplifting about seeing hordes of nuns kicking off the restrained habits of a lifetime and going for it with Travolta-esque moves and grooves. The joy is preordained but it’s joy all the same."

The Times (UK)
July 28th, 2022

"Economically directed by Bill Buckhurst — that faces the challenge of how to fill such an imposing space. Morgan Large’s set design is a little basic. Knight works tremendously hard as the audience cheers her on, but her acting tends to hit the same note in every scene."

The Arts Desk
July 28th, 2022

"We're never far away from an uplifting moment of self-realisation, an underlining of the power of humanity and love in a world of rules and fear and some ol' fashioned song and dance routines with voices raised in heavenly harmonies."

The Stage (UK)
July 28th, 2022

"Bill Buckhurst’s production takes a while warming up in the first half... but the pacing and energy levels improve significantly in the second half. ... This joining of voices eclipses everything else and is genuinely uplifting – even glorious."

"As a production knowing exactly what it wants to do led by a heavenly vocalist, 'Sister Act' pulls off a lot of it with adept poise – offering a divine night out in the process. Oh, and keep an eye out for the pope-mobile!"

Shy Strange Manic
July 25th, 2022

Sister Act the Musical has hit London with an all-star cast to bring joy to audiences this Summer, but does it hit the mark? The famous film is brought to the stage with its biggest songs stripped out in favour of a new score that doesn’t quite hit the heights of the film.
