Critical praise for Sister Act!
… the crowning grace in this heart-thumping, toe-tapping, clap-your-hands production is the casting of Branden Noel Thomas as Sister Mary Clarence (aka Deloris van Cartier, “of the Cartier Family”). With glitter-adorned eyelashes that reach almost into the first row of the audience, curls that tumble to her shoulders like Niagara Falls, and glorious vocal pipes that any church organ would envy to possess, this Sista is almost assured of packing ‘em in at the Gateway Theatre for nightly congregations full of revival-meeting fervor.
Noel Thomas, playing the lead role in drag, dominates the stage. … His upper register and some of the more soulful tracts sound like they come from a powerful blues beltin’ mama.
Sister Act is a sweet love story that will have you discreetly wiping away tears during the encore.
