Goldberg’s return to Sister Act is a hit

The actress-turned-U.S. TV personality played nightclub singer Doloris in the hit 1992 movie and its sequel the following year (93).

She got back in the habit last week (10Aug10) to play Mother Superior in London’s stage show version of the film – and fans are going to extreme lengths for a chance to see the musical.

Tickets are attracting bids of more than $300 (£200) on various websites and die-hard devotees are queueing overnight at the box office outside the London Palladium theatre.

A spokesperson for the producers tells the city’s Evening Standard newspaper, “We always knew that Whoopi as Mother Superior would give us a boost but what we’ve seen at the Palladium is totally unprecedented.

“People are queueing from before dawn for day seats – some people are even camping out overnight, and some even remain in the returns queue long after curtain has gone up in the hope of getting a ticket.”
