Friday, March 14 at 7:30pm • Fabulous Fox Theatre
 
Tickets on sale Friday, November 8 at 10am!
 
St. Louis, MO – October 29, 2013 Global music phenomenon Celtic Woman will return to North American concert stages in early 2014 with The Emerald Tour, which includes a stop at the Fabulous Fox Theatre Friday, March 14 at 7:30pm.
 
Tickets for the March 14 engagement at the Fox will go on sale Friday, November 8 at 10am online at MetroTix.com, by phone at 314-534-1111 and in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office. Ticket prices are $102, $72 and $42.
 
The elaborate new stage presentation will celebrate the Emerald Isles’ spellbinding musical and cultural heritage. The concerts will combine longtime fan favorites with new musical gems written specifically for Celtic Woman, under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes.  The Emerald Tour will spotlight the angelic voices and inspiring music that have won Celtic Woman the devotion of a worldwide audience.
 
Celtic Woman is a unique ensemble that showcases the talent and charisma of four gifted young Irish women, whose dazzling performances combine the sound and sensibility of Irish traditional music with contemporary pop standards and memorable original compositions.  Recently named Billboard magazine's #1 World Music Artist, Celtic Woman presents a one-of-a-kind concert experience that also incorporates the talents of a group of world-class musicians, the Aontas Choir, bagpipers and championship Irish dancers. 
 
Since its inception in 2004, Celtic Woman has emerged as both a spectacular commercial success and a genuine cultural phenomenon.  The group's uplifting mix of timeless tradition and contemporary craft has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a loyal international fan base, who've embraced Celtic Woman's hugely successful public television specials and made their eight CDs and seven DVDs into multi-platinum best-sellers.  The multitalented ensemble has sold more than eight million copies of its releases, all of which have debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music chart.  As a live act, they continue to sell out concert halls around the world, having performed for nearly three million fans. 
 
Celtic Woman has won a particularly passionate audience in America, where their elaborately staged, visually stunning concert tours consistently draw sellout crowds.  The group has performed twice at the White House, as well as making high-profile appearances on such American television shows as Dancing with the Stars and the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful. 
 
Celtic Woman recently completed a successful month-long tour of European concerts, encompassing performances in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.  The busy group is currently preparing for its third annual holiday tour of North America, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra.  The group then plans to kick off 2014 with a rare tour of Australia.
 
Singing songs of love, loss, hope and inspiration, Celtic Woman celebrates Ireland's centuries-old musical and cultural traditions, while taking advantage of the limitless options of state-of-the-art stage production.  The result is a breathtaking musical and theatrical experience to be enjoyed by multiple generations of concertgoers.

Prices are subject to change; please refer to FabulousFox.com for current pricing. SISTER ACT is part of the Fox Theatre’s 2013-2014 U.S. Bank Broadway Series.
SISTER ACT received five 2011 Tony Award nominations: BEST MUSICAL, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE (Alan Menken (music)/ Glenn Slater (lyrics)), BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL (Cheri & Bill Steinkellner and Douglas Carter Beane), BEST ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL (Patina Miller) and BEST FEATURED ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL (Victoria Clark).
SISTER ACT is produced by Whoopi Goldberg, Stage Entertainment and Troika Entertainment, featuring an original score with music by multi-Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning composer Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Enchanted), lyrics by Tony and Academy Award-nominee Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid), and a book by multi-Emmy Award winners Cheri and Bill Steinkellner (“Cheers”) with additional book material by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane (Xanadu, The Little Dog Laughed). Directed on Broadway by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks (Guys and Dolls, A Funny Thing…Forum, Smokey Joe’s CafĂ©), the production features choreography by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Anthony Van Laast (Mamma Mia, Bombay Dreams) and is based on the Touchstone Pictures motion picture Sister Act written by Joseph Howard.
 
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won't be found - a convent!  Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior.  Using her fabulous disco-ness and killer voice to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church, but in doing so blows her cover.  Soon it’s nun-on-the-run time but she finds salvation in the heavenly power of her newly found sisterhood.  Based on the mega-hit feature film, SISTER ACT features an original Alan Menken/Glenn Slater score with a vast inspiration of musical styles from Motown, soul and funk to great big disco anthems and Barry White inspired musical comedy.   
 
SISTER ACT features scenery by Klara Zieglerova, costumes by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Natasha Katz, and sound by John Shivers.  The music department includes Musical Supervisor Michael Kosarin, Music Director Brent-Alan Huffman, and orchestrations by Doug Besterman.
Elisabeth Vincentelli of The New York Post calls SISTER ACT, “One of the season’s happiest surprises! Off the charts and packed with goodies, to which we say: Amen!” Joe Dziemianowicz of The New York Daily News raves “A blessed event has landed on Broadway. Sister Act is a feel-good crowd pleaser worth celebrating. It keeps on purring from one happy moment to the next.”  Charles Isherwood of The New York Times says, “When the wimples start quivering and the nuns start rocking to raise the Gothic rafters, all’s right in the kingdom of musical comedy!” and Mark Kennedy of The Associated Press calls SISTER ACT, “In a word, divine. This is a musical that hits all the right spots, achieving something close to Broadway grace. It will convert you.”
