The sisters from Broadway's Sister Act will retire their habits and vacate the convent Aug. 26. In celebration of the musical's run and the holy ladies of Sister Act, Playbill.com takes a look back at the various screen and stage nuns throughout the years.
Here are highlights from the Broadway production of Sister Act, which opened in April 2011 starring Tony nominee Patina Miller as Deloris Van Cartier:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
