A convent is the last place you’d expect to find smart-mouthed disco diva Deloris Van Cartier. Which is exactly why she’s there: after she witnesses her mobster boyfriend commit murder, the cops transform her into Sister Mary Clarence and convey her into the hands of a no-nonsense Mother Superior for her own protection.
Whoopi Goldberg made the role her own in the 1992 film, but the acclaimed new Broadway version—brought to life with the professional and pre-professional performers of the Pittsburgh Musical Theater—adds some extra twists and glitz. This time around, Deloris’s tale gets the musical and sartorial stylings of the 1970s. Instead of oldies there’s a whole new set of originals that play both sides of the secular/spiritual divide, boasting titles including “It’s Good to be a Nun,” “Haven’t Got a Prayer,” and “Take Me to Heaven.” (Composer Alan Menken won some of his eight Oscars for work on films including Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Little Shop of Horrors.) The songs propel the plot as Deloris—naturally—transforms the convent’s tone-deaf choir into a starring musical attraction, while trying to fly under the radar of the mob.
