Ta'Rea Campbell and Hollis Resnik in Sister Act

Sister Act @ Gammage Auditorium
The 1970s are popular in a way they haven't been since the first time around. (Back in the '70s, the '70s were everywhere you looked.) Is it cause or effect that Sister Act the stage musical is set in that synthetic, lapel-spanning era? Either way, the sense of nostalgic innocence helps an audience get into the fun, and so does a score full of tunes by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast). If that doesn't make up for chanteuse-turned-nun Deloris Van Cartier failing to teach the sisters any Motown girl-group hits, as she did in the 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film -- well, you'll always have Netflix.

Catch the old-is-new spectacular, fresh from its 2011 Broadway debut, through Sunday, June 30, at Gammage Auditorium, 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe. Wednesday, June 26's curtain is at 7:30 p.m. and seats start at $20 before fees at or 800-982-2787. -- Julie Peterson
