Whoopi Goldberg Returns to Sister Act


Whoopi Goldberg will be joining the cast of the London production of Sister Act, a play based, obviously, on her 1992 nun film. Goldberg, who has never before performed on the West End, will play the part of Mother Superior from August 10 to August 31, though in the movie she played Sister Mary Clarence. Already the proud owner of an EGOT — an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award — were Whoopi to win any sort of British theater award at all, such as the Evening Standard Award, she could have an EGOT+.
