MNM Theatre Company’s Sister Act, is a work that you may not have taken to the first time or two, but can surprise you when a company invests freshness, energy and skill. You see it as if it were the first time.

When a theatrical production’s scenery, lighting and costumes get as much attention as the characters, chances are the story is a bit slim. You see that clearly with Riverside Theatre’s eye-popping Sister Act, a co-production with the venerable Walnut Street Theatre of Philadelphia.
Sister Act is not a terrible musical; it even has amusing and mildly entertaining passages. But the national tour at the Arsht Center is also a head-shaking mediocrity that begs an answer to why talented theater veterans wasted their time – and ours – on it.
