I saw Sister Act (Broadway), but I don't remember exactly when. Overall, I'd say it was a 3-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “"it was better than a carrot!"”

I had a blah time and left the show feeling numb and bored. I'd describe the show as mediocre, basic, and inocuous. The end was a highlight of the show because i could leave. If this were a movie, I'd rate it PG. I would recommend this show to no one but not to fun people.

I saw this show because i have a theater blog. I wouldn't see it again. I sat in the left mezzanine area of the theater. The view was fine and the seats were comfy.

calvin trillin would tell a story about his daughter... apparently, she was a finicky eater... like most kids, she did not care for vegetables... CARROTS were not her LEAST favorite... but, she certainly did not LOVE them...

anyway, trillin... in an attempt to broaden her palate... presented her with an exotic dish one evening... she tasted it... thought about it for a moment... didn't HATE it...

the ONLY thing she uttered was –

"IT WAS BETTER THAN A CARROT!"

that sorta sums up my feelings about SISTER ACT... there was NOTHING to dislike... the leads were fine... the supporting characters were fine... the chorus was fine... the set was fine... the songs were enjoyable... but that was it...

i wasn't bothered... insulted... annoyed...

it just felt...

"BETTER THAN A CARROT"...
