Whoopi Goldberg has to leave Sister Act

Sad news that Whoopi Goldberg, who has been playing Mother Superior in Sister Act the Musical at the London Palladium, will miss her final three performances this week as she has had to fly back to the United States to be with her mother who’s suffered a stroke. Hopefully it’s not too serious.

The role of  will be played by Ms Goldberg's understudy until Thursday 2nd September  when Sally Dexter takes over the role. Miss Dexter has played Nancy in Sam Mendes's 1994 revival of Oliver! at the London Palladium, Mrs Wilkinson in Billy Elliot the Musical , Lady Macbeth in Macbeth, Anna in the original production of Patrick Marber's Closer, Regan in King Lear and Bad Girls - the Musical. 

The producers are saying that if you have booked to see Whoopi Goldberg and do not wish to attend the scheduled performance refer back to your original point of sale.
