Hilarious, Great singing, Must see, Funny, Delightful

See it if You like musicals it’s different it’s fun it’s well executed Lots of Barry white /BGees references which may go over the heads of some

Don't see it if You don’t like musicals it’s very tongue in cheek seventies /early 1980s disco fun if you hate the thought of it give it a miss

Disappointing, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You only care about the stars. Songs were too spread out and unmemorable.

Don't see it if You want something fast paced or funny. Some shocking singing from Jennifer Saunders (which was laughed off)

Great singing, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You're up for a lighthearted feel good story and dazzling costume and dancing. It's a riot!

Don't see it if You're too serious to laugh at silly jokes

Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining, Funny, Delightful

See it if This is a super fun show. It starts a little slowly, but has a great cast, vocals, comic moments and fabulous costumes!

Don't see it if The venue is huge, so unfortunately if you can't afford a stalls ticket you may end up dissapointed.

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 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."

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 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!"

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."

London Theatre
July 28th, 2022

"You’ll leave the theatre humming Alan Menken and Glenn Slater’s fabulous score and ready to come back for more. If you see one show about singing nuns this summer, make it 'Sister Act' at the Eventim Apollo."
