Raven-Symone, who is best known for her TV roles as Olivia on The Cosby Show and the star of Disney’s, That’s So Raven, debuted in the Broadway musical, Sister Act last night in New York City.
Symone stars as Deloris Van Cartier, whom Whoppi Goldberg played in the original film back in 1992.
The singer-actress has been out of the lime light for a few years now, but is back with a hit starring role and a slimmed down figure. In an interview to Broadway.com, Symone shared advice that Goldberg gave her telling her to “listen to [director] Jerry Zaks and really concentrate” before the show premiered.
The Broadway musical is expected to be a big hit and will run for six months, with Symone headlining the show.
