Review: Sister Acts Slays and Alexandra Burke Delivers at the Palace Theatre
Alexandra Burke’s vocals never fail to deliver in the musical adaptation of the much loved movie classic Sister Act. Despite not featuring any of the original songs from the movie made famous by Whoopi Goldberg, new classics were loved such as Fabulous, Baby and Take Me To Heaven.
The sassy role of Deloris Van Cartier is brought to life with spectacular numbers, reminding the audience why they once fell in love with the X Factor winner who made television history by duetting with Beyonce Knowles back in 2008 whilst being mentored by Cheryl Cole.
Directed by Craig Revel Horwood, Sister Act the musical follows in the footsteps of the original plot whilst providing a new vision that will win over old and new fans alike. And yes, just like the song suggests…this show is Fabulous, Baby. After all, who doesn’t love dancing nuns, sequins and soul musicals?
