Raven–Symoné to Take Over 'Sister Act' Role


By Joshua Gardner

The former child star will debut in Whoopi Goldberg-produced show in March

We’ve watched her grow from world’s most precocious child star to Disney darling and now Raven–Symoné is slated to become a full-fledged adult star.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the former The Cosby Show scene-stealer will take over the role of Deloris Van Cartier in the Whoopi Goldberg-produced musical stage version of Sister Act.

But unlike Patina Miller, who currently plays the role, this isn’t Raven-Symoné’s first Broadway turn. That debut happened for her many years ago when she appeared with the Boys Choir of Harlem at the age of five.

We’re sure the gifted singer-actress made a splash then and will do so again in March when she is scheduled to make her first appearance.
