London Theatre News Today: Tuesday 16 February

Published 16 February 2021

Sister Act The Musical at London’s Eventim Apollo postponed until July 2022

Due to the current and ongoing pandemic restrictions and the knock-on effect this has had to the international production’s schedule, Jamie Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg, the producers of Sister Act The Musical, have sadly come to the decision that it is impossible to open the show in London this summer and have postponed performances at the Eventim Apollo until 2022. The new dates for the production in London are 19 July 2022 – 28 August 2022.

This necessary change of date now means that Whoopi Goldberg will no longer be able to appear in the role of Deloris Van Cartier.

Goldberg says, “SISTER ACT is near and dear to my heart and I’m disappointed that I will be unable to perform in this production under the circumstances.  However, my producing partners and I will continue to work towards mounting a fantastic production, with an amazing new cast and we look forward to presenting it when it can be done safely for everyone onstage, behind the scenes and in the audience.”

Producer Jamie Wilson says “This new version of Sister Act The Musical has been in development for several years now and both Whoopi and I are committed to launching this celebratory, joyous and life affirming production with audiences in the UK. We can’t wait for everyone involved in the show to get back to doing what they love. We are now in the process of putting together a star-studded cast and will be able to share this news with you soon. We look forward to us all supporting and celebrating theatre when we return to the stage. It will be worth the wait”.

Casting for the role of Deloris Van Cartier and all other roles for the London performances of Sister Act in 2022, together with an announcement in regards to the UK tour of the show along with casting for the UK tour, will be made soon.

All patrons who have booked for Sister Act at London’s Eventim Apollo will be contacted directly by their point of sale/ticket provider shortly and do not need to contact the Box Office directly themselves. All existing ticket holders have been moved in to the same seats for equivalent performances by day of week for the 2022 run, with the option for a refund for patrons who would prefer this.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the producers have taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming run of Good, starring David Tennant, which was due to play from 21 April – 17 July 2021.

The production will be rescheduled to run at the Harold Pinter Theatre and will still star David Tennant, Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey.

Current ticket holders do not have to do anything right now.  Their point of purchase will be in touch directly regarding the booking and existing patrons will be given priority access to the new dates before they are made available publicly.

The producers thank you for your continued commitment to the theatre community at this challenging time and look forward to sharing the production once it is safe to do so.
