Whoopi Goldberg comes to West End
Theatregoers with Sister Act tickets will soon be able to see Whoopi Goldberg in action.
The Oscar-winning star played Deloris Van Cartier in the hit 1992 movie, upon which the show is based.
However, she will not reprise this role and will instead appear as Mother Superior.
This will be the first time that Goldberg, who also starred alongside the late Patrick Swayze in Ghost, has appeared on the West End stage.
Her first performance will take place on August 10th and she will continue until the end of the month.
The original Sister Act film was so successful that it quickly spawned a big screen sequel in 1993.
It transferred to the stage in 2006 with a run at the Pasadena Playhouse in the US before opening on the other side of the Atlantic last year.
Goldberg will also be familiar to audiences from her frequent appearances in Star Trek: The Next Generation as Guinan.
