Special Guests: Dan’yelle Williamson & Laura Giknis – SISTER ACT

Dan’yelle Williamson & Laura Giknis Sister Act

 

Sister Act began life as the 1992 comedy film featuring musical arrangements by Marc Shaiman and starred Whoopi Goldberg. Maggie Smith and Harvey Keitel were also in the film. The sequel Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, followed soon after, and the films inspired the musical Sister Act that premiered at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California in 2006, and opened at the London Palladium, in the West End in 2009. The musical then opened on Broadway in April 2011. Sister Act has been a mega success both on the screen and on the stage and it is currently being presented at Walnut Street Theatre here in Philadelphia. Two of the main reasons the Philly production is getting such phenomenal reviews are: Dan’yelle Williamson who plays Deloris Van Cartier and Laura Giknis who plays Sister Mary Robert. As soon as these two beautiful actresses took centre stage I knew I was in love…with them, and with the show. They and IT are so incredible that a 2 and a half hour production feels like it lasts 15 minutes.
