If there’s one thing we can say about Raven Symone, it’s that the girl stays working. Shortly after the cancellation of her sitcom “State of Georgia” on ABC Family, the starlet has landed the lead role of Deloris Van Cartier in the Broadway play, Sister Act. The play, based on the similarly titled movie, is being produced by Whoopi Goldberg.
This is not Raven’s first time on a Broadway stage. Back when she was five years old, Raven sang with the Boys Choir of Harlem. As Raven prepares to take on this lead role, she’ll replace Patina Miller who has played the role of Deloris since the show first opened this past April.
According to Deadline, Raven will begin rehearsals at the end of February and hit the stage at the end of March. She’ll star in the play for a minimum of six months.
Now that Raven’s involved, do you plan on seeing this play?
