Whoopi Goldberg on returning to the West End

Whoopi Goldberg was a guest on Monday night’s episode of Late Night with  Seth Meyers to talk about putting her own unique twist on hosting guests and her return to the stage for Sister Act.

Goldberg told Seth Meyers, “We tried to a really long time to get them to make Sister Act 3 and everybody kept saying to us, ‘No one wants to see that. It’s an old title.'” I said, ‘I’m an old broad. Why would it be a bad thing?’

Goldberg continues, “When they said ‘We want to take it back on the stage, and do something, and I’m one of the producers, you wanna do it?’ And I said, ‘Yeah if I could play Dolores.’ And they said, ‘Would you?’ And I said, ‘Well, you’d have to explain that she’s a little older, but it doesn’t change the fact that she is who she is.'”

Whoopi Goldberg will reprise her starring role as Deloris Van Cartier for the first time on stage with Jennifer Saunders as Mother Superior in a newly adapted production of the smash-hit musical Sister Act at London’s Eventim Apollo from 29 July to 30 August 2020.
