“Sister Act,” the movie has been turned into a musical and will take to the stage at a Broadway theater in March.  Opening for the play will begin in April

Whoopi Goldberg was the star of the movie and will be the producer for the musical.

No casting information is available at this time.

Goldberg played the role of Mother Superior in the musical’s London tour and had to leave the play to rush back to the United States and be by her mother’s side, after she learned her mother had a stroke.  Her mother later died from stroke complications.

[tweetmeme] Our thoughts and prayers go out to Whoopi Goldberg.  The 54-year old comedian, actress and view moderator had to end her run on London’s Sister Act a week early after her mom suffered a stroke.

Goldberg immediately flew back to the United States after hearing about her mom’s condition.

Bill Taylor, of Stage Entertainment UK says …

“Our thoughts and sincere best wishes are with Whoopi at this difficult time”

No word on her mother’s condition has been confirmed.

As of today, Goldberg will be in attendance when The View kicks off its 14th season on September 7th.  David Letterman will make his first appearance on the show as Barbara Walters returns in-studio.
