Photo Coverage: SISTER ACT's Gypsy Robe Ceremony High Res Photos


SISTER ACT began preview performances March 24 and opened on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 to a great set of reviews. A long-standing opening night tradition on the Great White Way, the fabled Gypsy Robe is bestowed upon a veteran Broadway chorus member for each opening production. In what has now become a theatrical ritual, originating on Broadway 60 years ago, SISTER ACT cast member Kevin Ligon received the Gypsy Robe and BroadwayWorld was there for the celebration.
