Sister Act, the Musical, on at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry until 14 October 2023.

Review by Margaret Mather

Funky fashion and glitter abound in this 70s inspired musical.

What a joyous, lively and uplifting show this turned out to be. The original film was set in the 90s, the musical is set in the 70s and does not disappoint. The attention to detail was outstanding. Platform boots and Fair Isle tank tops mingled with short sparkly dresses, all-in-one suits and oversized collars. People of a certain age will remember the fashion of the day. I know I do.

Deloris Van Cartier (played by the extremely talented Landi Oshinowo) is a disco singer who witnesses a shooting. She is persuaded to go into a convent for safekeeping until the trial. She reluctantly agrees, and that’s where mayhem happens.

Mother Superior (Lori Hayley Fox) played her part to perfection. She was against Deloris from the start, but when push came to shove, she supported her. Sister Mary Robert (Lizzie Bea) was an absolute delight. Her singing ranged from soft and clear to powerful and vibrant. All of the Sisters were superb and injected well rehearsed humour, coupled with heavenly singing, into their parts.

Deloris has an admirer, Eddie Souther (Alfie Parker) the policeman who is trying to keep her safe. He is brilliant throughout and his solo spot in the office is a must see. The gangsters (Curtis Jackson, Bradley Judge, Damian Buhagiar, Callum Martin and Castell Parker) were hilarious. Their whole persona was one of brilliance. They worked together like clockwork. Wonderful timing and acting.

The set mainly consisted of an arch depicting stain glass windows of the convent with the occasional set change to a club. What the staging lacked was more than made up for by the first-class performance of the whole cast. The ending was truly a glitzy extravaganza.

This is an uplifting show full of joy and laughter. You will not be disappointed.
