*To celebrate her West End run in the musical “Sister Act,” Madame Tussauds London unveiled a wax figure of Whoopi Goldberg wearing an exact replica of the costume she wears on stage for her role as Mother Superior.
In the 1992 original film and 1994 sequel, Goldberg played Deloris Van Cartier — a Reno lounge singer on the run from the mob who seeks refuge in a San Francisco convent.
