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 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.

About State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
