Sister Act

Direct from Broadway, SISTER ACT, the hilarious, five-time Tony-nominated musical smash, is coming to Miami. Called “In a word, DIVINE!” by the Associated Press, SISTER ACT opens at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County on April 14 for a limited engagement! 

SISTER ACT closes the 2014-2015 Broadway in Miami subscription season presented by Bank of America. Produced by Whoopi Goldberg, TROIKA Entertainment and Sister Act On Tour, LLC, SISTER ACT received five 2011 Tony® Award nominations including BEST MUSICAL, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE (Alan Menken (music)/Glenn Slater (lyrics), and BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL (Cheri & Bill Steinkellner and Douglas Carter Beane).

SISTER ACT is based on the Touchstone Pictures motion picture Sister Act written by Joseph Howard. When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put into 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 fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood. 

“To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at SISTER ACT—a show people think they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they are expecting—is a magical experience for a producer,” says producer Whoopi Goldberg. “Happily, audiences across the country are able to get in on the fun as Deloris and her fabulous sisters spread the love nationwide.” 

Appearing April 14 – 19, tickets start at $26*. The show will be in the Ziff Ballet Opera House of the Adrienne Arsht Center located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, in Miami, FL 33132. For tickets visit , or call the Box Office at (305) 949-6722. 

Set in the heart of downtown Miami and designed by world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is one of the world’s leading performing arts organizations and venues. Since opening in 2006, the Arsht Center, a 501C3 non-profit organization, has emerged as a leader in presenting innovative programming that mirrors South Florida’s diversity as well as a catalyst for billions of dollars in new development in the downtown area. Spotlighting legends and serving as a launch pad for local artists to make their mark on the international stage, the Center presents nearly 500 events each year across its eight flexible, state-of-the-art performance spaces. The Center programs 12 signature series, including the largest jazz series in South Florida, the biggest flamenco festival on the East Coast, and a robust program of new theatrical works as well as free programming for the community and an arts education program that serves nearly 30,000 children each year. As Miami’s new Town Square, the Arsht Center also houses Brava!, a fine dining restaurant; the Café at Books & Books in the historic Carnival Tower and a weekly Farmers Market.
