My current reviews are all based on a trip to Oxford during the half term week, and the main purpose was to see Sister Act The Musical which left its London home at The Palladium over a year ago and has embarked on a nationwide tour. Its playing at some of the larger regional theatres and with Oxford being the closest to me I thought it was high time to get back into the Habit! *****The Theatre***** The New Theatre Oxford is quite grand for a regional theatre and in fairness on the inside it wouldn't look out of place in the West End. The auditorium is vast seating around 1300 people with a stalls section, circle and balcony. For this performance of ... Read the complete review

Sister Act is currently on at the London Palladium just off Oxford Street and stars Shelia Hancock (of Over the Rainbow fame) as the Mother Superior, Patina Miller as Dolores Van Cartier and Simon Webbe as Shank. The story goes as follows: Dolores, a night club singer, witnesses her boyfriend Shank, a local gangster, murder someone and runs straight to the police.

I managed to bag top price tickets to this show for £15 and to be honest I don't think it was actually worth much more than this, £30 at the max and i wouldn't pay to go again. the set of the show was pretty amazing, never before have i seen such an intricate design or so much glitz and glamour. but at the end of the day that's all it was. lots of dancing nuns in different sparkly costumes. the music wasn't as convincing as shows such as 'hairspray' or 'wicked. i'm not saying the show lacked energy for it lacked anything but. however it was just a bit samey. if you can get hold of some cheap tickets for this its worth a go but not worth paying full price tickets. i also .

I am always trying to think of something a bit different or more interesting to do for my birthday. This year my group of friends and I all fancied a trip to the theatre so we picked Sister Act as none of us had seen it and I have heard some good things about the show. I ordered the tickets from See Tickets online. If you go onto the site for Sister Act then it will direct you to here to buy tickets. The tickets I ordered were for the stalls and cost £47.50 each, there were some slightly more expensive ones nearer the front at £62.50 and there were also cheaper ones at £37.50, £25 and £17.50 in the upper circle. Tickets can also be purchased at more late ... Read the complete review
