Theatre | Sister Act The Musical Review - Belgrade Theatre

Sister Act The Musical

I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to see the spectacular show of Sister Act The Musical at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry this week & what a fantastic performance it was. Even with a couple of technical issues, the show still went on! 

Sister Act The Musical

Firstly, let’s talk about how fabulous the stage was. With an incredible light titling the show which I thought was a brilliant addition at the start of the show and the interval. Alongside the incredible mosaic archway that was created to showcase the church vibe with changing lights throughout the performance.

As for the whole cast, my GOSH they could SANG!! And I mean sang on purpose, as they were INSANELY talented, from the harmonies to the amount of time they could hold a note for. They had some incredible lungs. A few of my favourites were Sister Mary Robert played by Lizzie Bea (A Hairspray favourite), she literally blew everyone away with her INCREDIBLE voice and the power in her lungs! Alongside West End star Landi Oshinowo who played everyones favourite nun, Deloris. Who was FABULOUS in every way possible. I also have to give a shoutout to Isabel Canning who played Sister Mary Patrick, had me and my friend Sophie in stitches with laughter. Her enthusiasm and brilliance was unmatched. 

I also have to mention about the male actors, 3 in particular being TJ (Bradley Judge), Joey (Callum Martin) & Pablo (Damian Buhagiar). There were a few scenes in particular featuring these actors and every single time they had the audience in absolute stitches of laughter. They were full of fun, enthusiasm and sass.

Let’s talk about the incredibly designed costumes that fitted the era and show perfectly. From brightly coloured sequin nun habits to 70’s disco flared pants. They were full of sass and everyone looked the part, if not better.

Every single song was fabulous. I have to mention Steady Eddies solo was SO good. When the surprise comes out with his full sequin look that he wished for, that was probably one of the best moments of the show.

As for the atmosphere of the audience, everyone seemed to love it, clapping along and cheering after every song and gave the show a standing ovation at the end.

The overall showcase was so well thought of, with attributes of the original film shining through the whole show.

Concluding, the show was absolutely magnificent and I would happily see it again - I even saw my hairdresser there who said she’d seen it so many times. A brilliant musical that is a must see for theatre fanatics. Book your tickets at the Belgrade Theatre to see Sister Act The Musical between Monday 9th - 14th October 2023. They are also touring the UK, so check out where your local show will be performing from now until near the end of 2024 here.
