Sister Act in West End to welcome back Whoopi Goldberg
The West End musical Sister Act is to welcome back Whoopi Goldberg after she was forced to pull out of the show last month.
In news that is sure to delight her fans, the actress will return for a strictly limited run of five shows at the London Palladium on October 22nd to 23rd and October 25th 2010.
She had been delighting audiences and critics alike in August thanks to her lively portrayal of Mother Superior, but she had to make a speedy return home to the US after her mother had a stroke.
Sadly, Goldberg informed the world earlier this week that the elderly lady died shortly after she managed to get back and see her.
The role of head nun is currently being played by Sally Dexter as scheduled and Sister Act will be booking until October 30th 2010.
It will then close its curtains for the final time so that preparations can be made for The Wizard of Oz.
