Raven-Symone To Take Over The Lead in Broadway’s ‘Sister Act’

Raven-Symone-Sister-ActThat’s so… Sister Act-y.

Raven-Symone will take over the leading role of Deloris Van Cartier in the Broadway musical, Sister Act, beginning on Tuesday, March 27.

Symoné will take over the role from Tony and Olivier Award nominee Patina Miller, who will give her final performance on Sunday, March 18.

The show, which will celebrate its one-year Anniversary on Broadway on April 20, is playing at the Broadway Theater (1681 Broadway).

“Finding an actress who can play Deloris in Sister Act is no easy feat,” states producer Whoopi Goldberg. “She’s got to sing like an angel, dance her heart out, and land some really big laughs – and, trust me, doing it all in a habit is not easy! Luckily for us, Raven is more than up to the challenge and I think audiences are going to be wowed by her performance – we couldn’t be more excited that she’s joining the company.”

“Performing on Broadway has always been a dream of mine and I am beyond thrilled to be making my debut with this role in such a fantastic show,” said Symoné. “Sister Act has everything – amazing songs, hilarious jokes and a fabulous lead character you can root for – I can’t wait to get onstage and share her story with audiences eight times a week.”

 Here’s an incredibly cheesy video of the announcement:
