After witnessing a murder, free spirited, disco diva Deloris Van Cartier finds herself in protective custody at a convent. At odds with a rigid Mother Superior, and a strict lifestyle, Deloris finds divine intervention bringing the choir from dour to dazzling with her signature style. While Deloris is busy raising the roof, her cover is blown and her new-found sisterhood rallies around her with a lot of love (and maybe a few sequins) in a tribute to the power of friendship.

Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.

Content Warning: Depictions of guns and violence, simulated gunshot.

Press & Reviews:

Nuns Just Want to Have Fun in Lyric’s ‘Sister Act’ | Theatre Mirror | Linda Chin
"Listening to the nuns sing off-key during choir practice when the group includes Kathy St. George and Carolyn Saxon is a special treat, and the same can be said for watching actors who’ve played dramatic roles act like thugs. Having ten (over half) of the 19 actors making their Lyric Stage debuts also demonstrates a commitment to inclusiveness."
Review of Sister Act | METRMag | Kevin T. Baldwin
"Davron S. Monroe, as Eddie, had probably the musical highlight of the show with his rendition of "I Could Be That Guy" backed up by the ensemble and featuring some highly inventive staging (and costuming)."
"And, of course, always leading the way is Odetoyinbo as Deloris, with boundless talent and energy, electrifying the production numbers."
Review of Sister Act | Boston and Beyond | Susan Mulford
"All the worries of the world can be left at the door as one smiles and laughs throughout this outstanding show."
Rejoice in Lyric Stage Company’s ‘Sister Act’ | The Sleepless Critic | Jeanne Denizard 
"The group’s collective and sweet chemistry is the heart of the show and they bring it in spades."
