Stage – 2009

Alan's thoughts
“Sister Act” is actually my first musical written directly for Broadway. All of my others were adaptations of my film musicals or transfers from Off-Broadway and it thrills me to see it opening all over the world; in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Milan etc.

All of the machinations one hears about leading up to our Broadway opening, are true in this case. Half the score got scrapped and rewritten. Directors came and went. Our leads changed. Producers changed. Book writers changed and in the end, I love this show so much. I’d go through it all again, gladly.
