Nancy Giles ("China Beach," "CBS News Sunday Morning") will moderate the post-show talkback, in which Sister Act performers share career and industry knowledge in a question-and-answer session.
Giles will be joined onstage by The Light in the Piazza Tony winner Victoria Clark, who was again Tony-nominated for her current performance as Mother Superior, Tony nominee Patina Miller (Deloris Van Cartier), Fred Applegate (Monsignor) and other members of the cast.
The Sister Act cast also features Sarah Bolt (Wicked) as Sister Mary Patrick, John Treacy Egan (The Producers) as Joey, Demond Green (The Toxic Avenger) as TJ, Chester Gregory (Dreamgirls) as Eddie, Kingsley Leggs (The Color Purple) as Curtis, Marla Mindelle (South Pacific) as Sister Mary Robert, Audrie Neenan (Picnic) as Sister Mary Lazarus and Caesar Samayoa (The Pee-wee Herman Show) as Pablo.
According to producers, "When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found — a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang are giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her new found Sister Hood."
Since 2001, the non-profit SAG Foundation has consistently welcomed high-profile entertainment industry professionals to "Conversations," an ongoing event series during which high-profile actors share career and industry knowledge.
